Glasgow School of Art: Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art)
|Institution||Glasgow School of Art|
|Department||School of Fine Art|
|Telephone||0141 353 4512|
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.
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. 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.
