Course summary

This course is unique; it is both research and practice-led in the field of curatorial studies. The course has taught aspiring curators for more than 15 years and is widely recognised as a pioneer of its kind, leading the new discipline of design curation. Graduates have pursued successful careers in museums, galleries and cultural organisations around the world and the course has developed an extensive international network of curators.

The Kingston School of Art environment, which includes the Stanley Picker Gallery, Dorich House Museum and outstanding workshop facilities, encourages creativity and experimentation as responses to interrogations of contemporary conditions and concerns. Through its projects at the Design Museum and with prestigious cultural organisations, including the British Council, Architecture Foundation, British Museum and the V&A, the course gives you the opportunity to curate live projects and build your own professional profile.

Assessment: Curatorial project briefs, seminar presentations, essays, and dissertation. One of the great strengths of this course is that graduates become part of a global network of curators. Graduates have joined leading international museums, galleries and cultural organisations which include the Victoria and Albert Museum; the Design Museum, London the British Council, Gallery Fumi; the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Sydney, the Korean Institute of Design Promotion and Shanghai Art Museum.
