Curating - Goldsmiths, University of London

Do you want to advance your knowledge of contemporary curating and pursue a professional career in the field of curatorial practice? The term 'curating' is used to refer to a wide range of activities including organising art exhibitions, festivals and professional events, staging of lecture series, public conversations, reading groups, and even the management of our lives on social media. This course explores how curating allows us to stage culture and put knowledge into circulation in multiple ways, and to place its practices in a historical and critical context. **Why study BA Curating at Goldsmiths?** - You’ll explore how curating allows us to stage culture and put knowledge into circulation in multiple ways. - The programme looks at curating practices in historical and critical contexts, so you'll be able to approach the subject from a range of perspectives. - You’ll study core modules in the history and theory of curating, alongside option modules in art history and visual culture that let you focus on your particular interests to get the most out of your degree. - At the end of the degree, you’ll take part in an exhibition of group projects with partner institutions, which will develop your skills in planning, programming and publicising exhibitions and events. - We’ll encourage you to join theoretical study with curatorial practice and you’ll have the opportunity to gain real-life experience through work experience. - Our London location means you’ll never run out of galleries, events, museums and visual culture to explore in the capital, with many organisations offering free or reduced-price entry for students. - You’ll even have access to inspiring and world-class exhibitions on campus at the newly opened Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art.
