Fine Art Sculpture University of Brighton

Undergraduate

Fine Art Sculpture at Brighton is a dynamic course that addresses contemporary fine art through exploring material, space and form in its widest sense.

At Brighton we take the view that sculpture is a way of thinking as much as a way of making. You will join a community of fine artists in an exciting art school environment, learning in specialist workshops with the freedom to create art in your own studio workspace.

Links with local, national and international arts communities provide opportunities for projects with artists, galleries, festivals and residencies. We have links with the universities of Nagoya, Japan; Nova Scotia; Canada and Kansas, USA, all of which run exchange programmes available by competitive application.

Our staff have specialist and broad-based knowledge which reflects contemporary art practice and informs teaching. Current staff interests include materiality, space and sound, digital media and performance, and the relationship between scientific experiment and natural phenomena.
