About This Masters Degree

Course Description

Programme Overview
Sculpture at the RCA is a longstanding programme, and one component of the School of Fine Art. However our staff and students understand that there is a wider fine art intelligence that falls outside the faculty structure. The debates around painting, often via drawing, and the raw side of printing are closely associated in the minds of good students.

The arts of photography, filmmaking, sound and performance, dance, theatre, the sciences, engineering and urbanism are habitual reference points. A spatial perspective allows for particular interpretation, that flavours and colours notions of placement, site, ‘edit’, objectness, material and matter. The ‘play’ involved in the processes of production is as much technical as it is philosophical. Mischief, curiosity and fluidity can affect change and shape a future.

Equally important is the sense of London as a destination, what it offers culturally, and as a critique of urbanism, of how façade and underbelly create a frisson. Students, staff and visitors join a mix that is set against these variables, and against the economic contingencies at play.

Students of the Sculpture programme are students of the whole College; collaboration and cross-disciplinary debate is actively encouraged. Diversity is not about dilution but rather a means to add rigour to debate and understanding.

Entry Requirements

You should have a good first degree in sculpture and display a talent in the making of sculpture and a mastery of its basic techniques and be knowledgeable about the history of the subject.
