About

The Art Curating program at the University of Sydney will help you to gain a sophisticated understanding of the full range of cultural, theoretical, social, political and economic issues underlying the art gallery and museum system. 

Overview

The Art Curating program at the University of Sydney is taught in collaboration with leading institutions and art spaces and offers unique access to practising artists and exhibition spaces for students who wish to specialise in contemporary art.You can choose units of study such as contemporary curating, taught in partnership with a range of contemporary art spaces; art and curating, taught at the Art Gallery of New South Wales; curating specialist areas including Asian art, Indigenous art and photography; or curatorial lab, giving you hands-on exhibition curating experience.

Why study with us? 

A key component of this program is the project-based internships supervised by industry professionals in local, national and international visual arts organisations. This provides invaluable workplace experience, training and networking opportunities.

The Master of Art Curating allows those already working in the sector – art teachers, curators, librarians, administrators, writers and gallery staff – to develop their career prospects, and also serves as a career change option for those new to the field.

Career Pathways

You will possess a strong foundation in the history of art museums and their cultural impact, and an awareness of the changing nature and role of curators in society and the current challenges they face. You will be well prepared for employment in a gallery or curatorial organisation.
