MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art)


This programme offers students an exciting opportunity to study curatorial practice in Glasgow, a city with one of the most vibrant and distinctive art scenes in Europe.

The programme is jointly run by the Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow, and is embedded within the city, drawing on its community of artists, gallery professionals, institutions and international connections. It  takes the link between curator and artist as the starting point from which to explore curatorial practice. Curating is thus presented as an activity that is reliant upon close and on-going contact with artists and a considered understanding of their work. A mixture of lectures, studio visits, discussion of contemporary artworks and curatorial projects form the backbone of the teaching, from which students are introduced to relevant debates and thinking key to the practice of curating.
