Course content

MA Curating and Collections at Chelsea College of Arts focuses on developing the skills needed to curate a range of art and design objects within the context of public and private collections.

You will work alongside the established curatorial team at Chelsea Space, our on-site gallery. You will handle a range of collections held by UAL, which will help you explore current debates and practices in curating.

The UAL collections include Chelsea's Special Collections, which have a strong emphasis on modern and contemporary art and design, Camberwell's ILEA collection of ceramics and glassware and Central Saint Martins' Museum and Study Collection, which includes early printed books, prints, illuminated manuscripts, embroideries, 1920s German film posters, textiles and garments.
