About

This Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) programme from The Glasgow School of Art offers students the opportunity to study curatorial practice in Glasgow, a city with one of the most vibrant and distinctive art scenes in Europe.

Overview

Key facts

The programme in Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) at The Glasgow School of Art 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.

Jointly run by The Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow, the programme 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 central tenet of the programme is that students undertake self-initiated curatorial work that reflects their individual interests and aspirations. 

Programme Structure

  • Working in different contexts, including a dedicated studio space at the heart of the School of Fine Art, participants develop individual research, hone their thinking and acquire practical professional skills whilst initiating and producing real exhibitions, projects and events.
  • The programme is taught by dedicated staff and guest faculty, including curators, artists and academics, and fosters diverse ways of working curatorially. 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.
