Fine Art with Contemporary Cultural Theory

This degree combines studio practice with contemporary philosophy and cultural theory, preparing you to be a critically aware artist graduate. Supported by artist-lecturers and visiting practitioners, you’ll work across different media to develop your body of work. At the same time, you’ll explore the relationship between art and society, examine theories of the image, the gaze and culture and examine questions of gender, sexuality and cultural difference. Placing art in its cultural context, you’ll have the opportunity to study related fields such as music, literature, cultural history, philosophy and film. You’ll work with artists and theorists across the School on current issues like ecology, cities, place, power and conflict. All of this will inform your practice, giving you the space to develop your creativity while responding to a variety of topics.
