Contemporary Curatorial Practice

Taught by leading curators and practitioners and with close ties to museums and art galleries, this programme follows a broad approach to curatorial practice in a contemporary context and enables students to develop their own specialism. The course aims to provide students with an understanding of the production, interpretation and reception of cultural artefacts and events in the 21st Century. It equips students with the ability to apply this knowledge and understand the role and responsibilities of the curator within contemporary society. Students may choose to follow particular specialisms, including art, design, fashion, music and performance.
