Course content

On the MFA Art, Society & Publics programme tutors work with students to develop their individual art practices. A rich and dynamic range of taught content is delivered through events and projects with partner organisations. The key focus of the programme is on the inter-relationships between art (production and the artist’s role), society (current societal issues) and publics (diverse audiences). Students are challenged to investigate, understand and experiment with the multiple contexts and sites where art unfolds. Thinking through art and art’s place in the world are tested through exposure to the intersection between established arenas such as the museum and gallery and non-art sites and platforms.
