Goldsmiths, University of London, London, United Kingdom 19 Dec 2014 - 15 Jan 2015
The MFA in Curating at Goldsmiths are currently welcoming applications for the 2015 entry.
The two-year MFA programme in curating is designed to develop professional and academic excellence in the field of contemporary curatorial practice. The programme is designed for students who wish to take up the challenge of contemporary curating as an artistic, social and critical undertaking, and who wish to develop their professional practice in this area.
The programme draws on the international scope of contemporary arts practice at Goldsmiths and in London, and instigates debate about the relationship between that practice, current critical discourse and concepts of curating. It’s designed for curators and those with related academic and practical experience who wish to achieve professional excellence in their practice, to innovate in the expanding field of curatorial practice. MFA Curating at Goldsmiths focuses in-depth on aesthetic, social, political and philosophical questions that are brought to bear in any place or at any event in which contemporary art is situated.
The programme is designed to provide a practice-led research context for students at any stage of their professional practice.
The programme offers knowledge in the form of a toolbox, ranging from theoretical concepts to the practicalities of exhibition making, and is built on a peer-to-peer learning model. Intellectual engagement with contemporary curatorial discourse is facilitated though tutorials, lectures, seminars, workshops and reading groups. The student-centred learning generates independent, articulate, confident, self-motivated, knowledgeable producers who support each other’s learning.
Goldsmiths’ MFA Curating programme is recognised worldwide for producing highly qualified curators and other arts professionals.
