You'll be introduced to the University and the technical workshops and facilities available to you. The first term includes a range of lectures and seminars and you’ll start to explore your creative practice.
Context and Method
Through a series of lectures and seminars, this unit provides an overview of a range of current debates that provide a cultural and intellectual context for the consideration of ideas within fine art and curatorial practice, encouraging your active engagement with them. Our programme addresses inter-disciplinary issues across curation through the discussion of theory and the consideration of specific artworks, activity, exhibitions and texts.
This unit is concerned with the exploration of creative practice, in order to inform the detailed development of your project proposal. This takes place throughout the first stage via a series of live projects working directly with industry partners.
During term two you begin developing your MA project, evaluating and testing out the aims of your proposal over a sustained period of self-directed study.
Project Development (Practice or Dissertation)
You'll begin to develop and investigate your proposed research project, testing ideas and establishing coherent modes for critically engaging with your curatorial practice. Throughout this phase you'll be supported through workshops, tutorials, forums, 'ideas in theory and writing' seminars and study visits locally, nationally and internationally.
In the third term of the course, you'll apply the knowledge gained through your research to create a final body of work.
Final Project (Practice or Dissertation)
You'll apply knowledge and experience gained in previous units to the realisation of your final MA project. This project realisation is the culmination, consolidation and dissemination of your studies and research.
