Months of entry
If you have a fine art, architecture or design background and would like to develop your professional practice within the contemporary fine art realm, this dynamic, production-based course is ideal. It enables you to identify and locate spaces in which to make and ‘test' your work, through site-specific work, performance and sound installation, internet activity, print-based publication, and so on.
- You can explore the relationship between art, architecture, design and space by working alongside professional fine artists, curators and writers.
- Project modules allow you to focus on an area of particular interest and gain valuable practical skills. These culminate with a major public exhibition/event and accompanying publication.
- You also have the chance to undertake site visits to supplement your learning, display work in the University's galleries and collaborate with external parties.
What will you study
You will develop and apply critical frameworks, debate a range of theoretical, cultural and social issues, and consider a variety of approaches to communicating and publishing your own research. You will focus on individual and collaborative practices, new technology, exhibition production and design, and a theoretical and critical programme to challenge and contextualise individual research. In addition, you will become familiar with the processes necessary to initiate and realise projects, developing and presenting proposals and collaborative working structures.Work placement scheme
Many postgraduate courses at Kingston University allow students to do a 12-month work placement as part of their course. The responsibility for finding the placement is with the student; we cannot guarantee the placement, just the opportunity to undertake it. As the work placement is an assessed part of the course, the work placement is covered by a student's tier 4 visa.
