Call for applications – PhD in Curatorial Practice, Monash University Art Design & Architecture , Australia
Monash University Art Design & Architecture (MADA) in Melbourne, Australia invites applications for the PhD specialisation in Curatorial Practice. Launched in 2014, the PhD in Curatorial Practice is practice-based and supports a spectrum of doctoral projects that reflect critically on how we engage with our cultures, our cities and our world. It fosters curatorial projects that test the limits of art institutions. It supports advanced scholarly work on exhibitions and their histories, conditions of art’s public appearance, and the politics of display. Finally, the program nurtures spaces of retreat to allow forms of research beyond those that normally occur within the framework of educational institutions.
One of the strongest advantages of the Curatorial Practice PhD is its location within an art school. MADA is a catalyst for creative engagement in the visual arts and supports an active community of the country’s leading artists, designers, architects, thinkers and cultural producers. Curatorial work is inherently dialogic, research based, and interdisciplinary, and candidates benefit from regular formal and informal encounters with artists.
