Course summary

About this course

Develop your artistic practice and understanding of contemporary art, relating to wider social and cultural contexts, with leading artists on LJMU's Fine Art MA.

  • Benefit from state-of-the-art workspaces and facilities within the modern, purpose-built and RIBA award-winning John Lennon Art and Design Building
  • Enjoy direct links with Liverpool’s most significant arts organisations, such as TATE Liverpool, Biennial, Bluecoat and FACT
  • Work in allocated studio space (for full-time students)
  • Network and collaborate in professional fields to boost your career prospects

Join a small group of students from a diverse range of backgrounds to develop your practice within a global context. You will benefit from a high level of discussion and reflection, test your artistic thinking, create exhibitions, events and collaborations.

We bring to the discussion of your work our expertise as artists with an established international exhibition practice. From our base in the shared cross-MA studio, we work in a number of architecturally diverse sites across the city for short projects and public-facing exhibitions. We see exhibition making as a medium to push your practice; to take risks, experiment and hone your professional skills. We invite curators and leading artists from the UK and internationally, to join us in crits and assessments. In many of these projects you take the lead, with our support – from scouting and negotiating sites to marketing and promotion. In doing so you are also building a professional network which will be invaluable to you after you graduate.

Our institutional partners Tate Liverpool, Liverpool Biennial and FACT support our Masters programme, through participating in crits and collaborating on events and international guest lectures. We collaborate every second year with the Liverpool Biennial in placing your Masters show within the framework of the Biennial programme. We also work closely with a number of dynamic local initiatives including MAKE Liverpool, The Royal Standard and CBS, to develop meaningful relationships with the wider cultural context of Liverpool.
