Curating Contemporary Art (MA)
Our graduating students present final projects developed in collaboration with partners the British Library, Camden Art Centre, Furtherfield and Gasworks. Curating under the conditions of Covid-19 continues to pose challenges to established modes of curatorial practice. Hybrid modes of working are fully explored in this year’s projects as opportunities to experiment across platforms, spaces and audiences emerge. Learning to work together across 14 different cities and 7 countries, this year’s students have commissioned over 20 artists and contributors to produce projects that fully embrace today’s global context of creative and curatorial collaboration.
