Course content

This two-part programme is designed to develop professional and academic excellence in the field of contemporary curatorial practice. The programme is designed for students who wish to take up the challenge of contemporary curating as an artistic, social and critical undertaking, and who wish to develop their professional practice in this area.

The programme draws on the international scope of contemporary arts practice at Goldsmiths and in London, and instigates debate about the relationship between that practice, current critical discourse and concepts of curating. It is designed for curators and those with related academic and practical experience who wish to achieve professional excellence in their practice, to innovate in the expanding field of curatorial practice.
