Course content

The MA Fine Art Course supports a broad range of experimental practices. This course will test and challenge your individual practice, bringing it into a contemporary critical context. Events, exhibitions and discussion help to build and challenge both individual and collective practices. The international profile of the course means that the community we foster is culturally diverse.

Our research based teaching strategies actively seek to extend your experience and skills. We work responsively to the changing needs of students to develop collaborative projects in relation to their own work. Recent groups have explored 3D imaging technology, field recording, digital platforms and education workshops.

External collaborations and opportunities produce rich and varied contexts to challenge orthodoxies and to develop new modes of practice. The course actively maintains its longstanding links with cultural institutions and organisations as well as seeking to develop new partnerships. We offer a broad range of professional experiences to students, from working with major public institutions to small artist-led spaces. Through such collaborations you will learn to bring works into a public context, experiment with forms of exhibition making, learn education and professional presentation skills.
