Introduction

MA Curating and Collections at Chelsea College of Arts focuses on developing the skills needed to curate a range of art and design objects within the context of public and private collections.

Content

What students can expect from the course:

- Practical skills to sit alongside critical reflection that helps our students develop a balanced approach to curatorial methods

- A course that focuses on working with contemporary and historic collections, exhibition design, concept development, marketing, press releases and budgeting

- To explore current critical debates, keeping up to date on issues such as participation, the artist-curator dynamic and thinking about the public realm

- Our curatorial team at Chelsea Space to provide training within an active and supportive curatorial environment, engaging students with the best examples of contemporary practice

- To have access to the Chelsea library Special Collections, which have a strong emphasis on modern and contemporary art and design

Structure

Phase 1: Analysis of practice and exploration of methodologies

Phase 2: Development and consolidation

Phase 3: Resolution

These phases are set within a credit framework of three assessed units:

- Studio practice and Advanced studio practice, which run sequentially

- Theoretical studies, which runs throughout the course

Studio practice involves evolving and developing a personal programme of studio work and related research. Theoretical Studies provides a framework for students to develop a critical research paper, enabling them to locate their ideas and practice in relation to contemporary debate on cultural and theoretical issues.

Throughout the course students participate in individual and group tutorials, developing their skills through Personal Professional Development workshops and on-line resources while the postgraduate talks are organised that introduce them to a range of visiting artists and practitioners.
