Course summary

The contemporary world of galleries and art museums involves a strong link between art history and curating. Art historians work with galleries and museums, while curators use their knowledge of art history to organise exhibitions. This course combines the study of art between 1800 and the present day with the study of curatorial practices during the same period, together with the essential practical skills and critical perspectives necessary to the contemporary curator.The programme addresses a diverse range of artists, movements, exhibitions and display spaces as well as theoretical approaches to art history and curating. You will be encouraged to engage in independent research and professional development using the many galleries of Manchester and the North West. The staff team delivering the course has expertise and research interests in curatorship and art history in the modern and contemporary periods.**FEATURES AND BENEFITS**- The course works closely with arts institutions and galleries in Manchester and beyond, helping foster professional skills and contacts.- Manchester School of Art collaborates with the Whitworth Art Gallery for regular public talks from internationally acclaimed speakers.- Opportunities to learn a foreign language and access the Erasmus international study programme.- Opportunities for national and international study trips.- You will have the opportunity to take part in Unit X, an innovative unit offered to students across Manchester School of Art that encourages interdisciplinary study and collaboration on an external-facing project.
