Course content

The MA Contemporary Curation is an exceptional opportunity to explore the latest concepts in curation theory and practice while gaining hands-on curatorial experience and industry insights. The course is based on campus, in The Winchester Gallery; from your first week you will be involved in the running of the gallery, from organising exhibitions and producing interpretation materials to marketing and audience development. Co-located with the School’s practising artists, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to collaborate on joint projects and apply your skills. Your practice will be underpinned by your developing knowledge of current curation theories and debates, informed by the School’s internationally recognised expertise in art and design, visual cultural studies, digital and new media theory. Our research-active academics have links with arts organisations and international festivals, opening up a range of additional learning opportunities. You will also be exposed to top professionals in the curatorial field through guest lectures and behind-the-scenes gallery visits.
