Call for applications – MFA in Curating, Goldsmiths, University of London, United Kingdom
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. It enables you to experiment and innovate in the expanded field of curatorial studies, to collaborate with curators, artists and scholars on an interdisciplinary basis and extend your own, and other students’ knowledge through this process.
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. Our student-centred learning generates independent, articulate, confident, self-motivated, knowledgeable producers who support each other’s learning. What we ultimately aim to do, is to help you become precisely the kind of curator that you want to be.
