Course summary

This degree combines studio practice with contemporary philosophy and cultural theory, preparing you to be a critically aware artist graduate. It builds from the idea that art-making is enriched by conversations with thinkers, filmmakers, writers, philosophers and scientists.Supported by artist-lecturers and visiting practitioners, you’ll work across different media to develop your practice. You’ll explore the relationship between art and society, examine theories of the image, the gaze and culture, and examine questions of gender, sexuality and cultural difference.You’ll initiate and organise curated exhibitions and events to develop both your practice and your ability to connect your practice with contemporary culture.Placing art in its cultural context, you’ll have the opportunity to study related fields such as music, literature, cultural history, philosophy and film.You’ll work with artists and theorists across the School on current issues like ecology, cities, place, power and conflict.All of this will inform your practice, giving you the space to develop your creativity, and preparing you for a career in the arts and culture sectors.Housed within a single central campus location, the School has excellent facilities and resources including studios, versatile exhibition spaces and social areas. Resources include:- dedicated Mac and PC computer suites and software for video editing, animation and image manipulation;- printmaking workshops for etching, relief and screen printing;- a photography darkroom for film developing and printing;- a woodworking and casting area;- digital and 3D printing.In addition to the wide range of museums and galleries in Leeds and beyond, the University campus features galleries and archives.
