Course summary

In the contemporary art world, as the boundaries between fine art practices are crossed, so too are the distinctions between artist, theorist and curator. This distinctive course challenges these boundaries, offering students the opportunity to develop and expand fine art practice through a deep engagement with art historical knowledge and theoretical ideas. The course also offers a curating pathway, allowing students to explore exhibition-making in its own right and as a form of artistic practice. As part of the undergraduate programmes in art theory and practice, the course shares much of its teaching with BA (Hons) Art History and Curating, and students from the two courses collaborate on projects and exhibition-making. It is taught by a multidisciplinary team of practising artists, art historians, curators and theorists. FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Emphasis on integrating studio practice and academic study.
  • Delivered by practising artists, historians, theorists, and curators.
  • Opportunities to learn a foreign language, visit international exhibitions and access international study programmes.
  • The course works closely with arts institutions and galleries.
