CURATING CONTEMPORARY ART, Royal College of Arts – London, England


The MA Curating Contemporary Art is internationally recognised for its commitment and emphasis on collaborative, studio-based project work that integrates theory and practice throughout the two years of the curriculum.

It approaches the field critically, theoretically and through best practice in commissioning, exhibition-making, programming and writing with London-based and national arts venues ensuring that the knowledge and understanding of these practices is grounded in the context of public audiences, globalisation and the digital. In the increasingly complex cultural environment which curating takes place, research-led teaching by staff and post-doctoral students ensures the curatorial significance, intellectual value and critical vitality of the MA programme.  Widely acknowledged as an important marker of current developments in contemporary art, the annual CCA MA show in the RCA galleries has become known for its experimental approaches to working with artists and for introducing new international artists to UK audiences.
