Course summary

Artists create the cultural resources of our shared future. On BA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, we recognise the breadth of possibilities in contemporary art, and will challenge you to develop an experimental practice. You will work in one of four pathways – 2D, 3D, 4D or XD – which encompass studio practice, theoretical studies and personal and professional development. This course is part of the Art programme.The artist studio is an experimental space where cultural conventions can be challenged. Rather than following a medium-based or a general fine art course format, our BA Fine Art course focuses on innovative forms of practice. It will provide you with the skills and knowledge to redefine and interrogate your chosen cultural and artistic fields. BA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins is organised into four pathways: 2D, 3D, 4D and XD. Each encourages you to develop your work in relation to different forms of practice rather than within the limitations of a single medium. The pathway structure itself also embodies an interdisciplinary approach. You will engage in cross-pathway projects, as well as cross-programme events in the College and University. As a site for constant reinvention, the studio is addressed in a variety of ways. It's framed as a laboratory, performative site, social space and discursive environment. The studio becomes an ambiguous territory which shifts between production, exhibition and interpretation. On the course, you will work on outward-facing projects and various forms of collaboration. There will be experimental forms of exhibition-making. Research and theory are also key to the course, leading up to a final dissertation. Teaching on the course encompasses theory, writing and practice. This structure mirrors the essential skills of a contemporary, practicing artist – with a need for communication as much as making. **About Central Saint Martins**Central Saint Martins is a world-renowned arts and design college which brings together a diverse range of creative practices under one roof.
