Course content

Our MA course explores historical and recent developments within the field of curatorial practice. It provides a means for understanding such strategies in the logistical contexts of art management, commercial and public gallery or museum operations, art fairs, fringe platforms and artist run spaces.

The distinctive geographical context of the course in Kent and the South East also offers you the opportunity to develop specific curatorial research in the context of cultural regeneration.

You'll be provided with opportunities for direct professional and public engagement with local arts organisations, biennales and public arts projects. And our course provides a range of means for testing curatorial strategies through both studio research and live contexts. This will help you to explore theoretical and practical processes of interpretation, framing and presentation.

You'll develop and manage your individual MA project. And this course is supported by seminars, tutorials, professional practice workshops, live projects, study visits and critiques.
