Course content

This MA supports the growing need for critical, theoretically informed, yet practical approaches to both the curation of contemporary art, and the art of curation. Based in The Winchester Gallery, students develop their own curatorial practice; study the history and theory of curating; hear directly from guest curators about issues facing the profession, and benefit from the insight of world-leading academics. Students will gain the knowledge and skills they need to pursue careers in existing and emergent curatorial and related professions in a variety of institutions.

Optional modules: Sustainability, Creative Thinking and Problem Solving, Digital Cultures, Entrepreneurship, Experimental Publishing, Exploring the Visual Language of Display, Global Marketing, Visual Culture
