About

The Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) programme at the University of Glasgow is aimed at graduates wishing to develop a curatorial career within the field of contemporary visual arts. It enables you to pursue independent and self-directed working, and to lay the practical, intellectual and professional foundations for working in future curatorial roles or contexts.

Overview

Why this programme

  • The Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) programme at the University of Glasgow is run in conjunction with The Glasgow School of Art, which is internationally recognised as one of Europe’s foremost art schools for teaching and research in fine art, design and architecture.
  • This programme offers students the opportunity to study curatorial practice in Glasgow, a city with one of the most vibrant and distinctive art scenes in Europe. The programme is embedded within the city, drawing on its community of artists, curators, institutions and international connections, and guides students to undertake curatorial work and develop approaches to practice which stem from a strong awareness of context and participation within it.
  • Throughout the course students are introduced to various working contexts, ranging from the gallery and the archive to site-specific contexts and artist-led activity. Students will work on live projects, gaining the most engaged and professionally focused experience possible. This includes the possibility of undertaking a placement tailored to their interests either within the city or further afield.
  • The programme offers links with external institutions in Glasgow, including CCA - the Centre for Contemporary Art, Glasgow International, GoMA, Tramway, The Common Guild and The Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery.
