Overview

This Public Art and Performance programme at London Metropolitan University encourages a practical and industry-minded approach to exploring how contemporary art experiences engage with the public. It runs collaborations with national and international art organisations, which so far have included: Tate Modern, City of London Corporation, Artichoke, the ICA, Ca' Pesaro in Venice, RMIT in Melbourne, Museum of Public Space in Bologna and The Monument to the Great Fire of London. This MA programme is one of the founding members of the International Masters Network for Art in Public Space, developing links with leading masters in this area, across the world. The course also enjoys a unique connection with CREATURE (London Met's own research centre for Creative Arts, Cultures and Engagement), particularly with its strand Public-Face: through this, our MA graduates are invited to continue to be part of our thriving research community.

The course is designed to develop career paths for artists, curators and facilitators interested in any creative medium (visual art, performance, video, installation, sculpture and digital art), with a specific focus on developing public-facing projects.

With funding bodies such as Arts Council England demanding that inclusivity and audience engagement are championed, the course also delves into the question of arts funding and how to gain commissions and promote yourself as an art professional.
