Programme overview

This programme, established in 2014 and jointly run by The Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow, offers students the opportunity to study curatorial practice in Glasgow, a city with a vibrant and distinctive international art scene. Throughout the year students are supported to identify and undertake individually motivated curatorial projects and research as the basis for the development of a self-sustaining practice, making this programme distinctive in its delivery. During this intensive one-year programme, students work closely with artists and a range of organisations, as they consolidate and articulate their practice within an international context of theory and practice. There is a balance between theoretical exploration and critique, where writing and concept-formation are challenged and developed by practical application and experimentation. There is the opportunity to work both individually and collaboratively at different stages in the year on projects that extend beyond exhibition-as-form, to include performance-based work, publications, digital platforms and other discursive modes of curation. The programme offers links with external institutions in Glasgow and Scotland, including ARIKA, ATLAS Arts, the Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow International, Glasgow Women's Library, GoMA, Hospitalfield, Rumpus Room, Tramway, The Common Guild, LUX Scotland, The Alasdair Gray Archive, WAVEparticle, Counterflows Festival, Queens Park Railway Club, Glasgow Sculpture Studios and The Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery. All GSA degree programmes are validated by the University of Glasgow.
