Course summary

Study current practices and build your personal curatorial skills on our innovative Curatorial Practice Master’s.

Taught by curators, you'll work with a rich and diverse group of partner organisations in the sector.
Combine contemporary practice with an understanding of theory and history in a flexible approach.
This curating course highlights the roles of audiences, collections and new contexts.

The role of the curator is changing. This MA Curatorial Practice pathway explores curating as a contemporary practice, and approaches a wide range of curatorial strategies. You’ll engage with theory and history alongside current practice, and gain hands-on experience of curating and presenting work. You’ll be challenged and supported to develop an independent voice in curating.

We encourage you to move beyond traditional collection and exhibition-based curation to engage new audiences, situations and sites of encounter – ranging from art interventions in public spaces and projects in unexpected places to digital and web-based experiences.

Our students have capitalised on many opportunities to collaborate with galleries and museums, artists and curators, businesses and educational institutions. We want you, too, to gain the experience necessary to professionalise your practice.

Overview

MA Fine Art (Curatorial Practice) at Bath Spa is designed for students who wish to broaden their knowledge and experience of gallery practice, models of curating and the changing nature of the museum.

This Master's degree will challenge your assumptions and encourage you to explore ways to progress within and transform the field. It will also encourage you to build collaborative relationships with other professionals and develop transferable skills.

You’ll take a holistic approach, embedding theory, research, and historical and contemporary practice into your work
