Curating

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Curating programs generally cover topics that teach students how to manage collections of items, images or artifacts for display. Courses in a program may cover topics such as how to design a display, how to choose items for display and how to manage a project.

MA in Art Practices: Pathway - Curatorial Practices - Film, Media and Visual Arts

Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology
Campus Full time 2 years July 2019 India Bengaluru

The Pathway in Curatorial Practices: Film, Media & Visual Arts is a two-year, full-time Masters programme designed to develop professional and academic excellence in the field of curating and to encourage students to curate projects and create a national and international network of peers and collaborators for their work. This specialisation is founded on the premise that there is no separation between practice and theory in curatorial work and that curators operate across a vast ecology of contexts and spaces, from the museum, to the commercial gallery, to the artist-led space, to the festival, to a lab, to new creative ventures. In today’s art world, the role of the curator often blends in with that of the artist, the publisher, the researcher, the archivist, and the creative entrepreneur. This programme responds to such interdisciplinarity by offering practice-led learning that combines the study of art history, aesthetics and exhibition histories with developing skills in critical writing and thinking, as well as project development and management. The students will explore the ethical, philosophical and political dimensions of current debates in contemporary art and culture, and will be encouraged to respond to the historical, political and cultural contexts of South Asia.
