These phases are set within a credit framework of three assessed units:
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.
Students are also supported by a strong postgraduate community and we provide opportunities to network with artists, curators, gallerists and other practitioners through organised events, degree shows, the Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Graduate School as well as the college’s own Chelsea Space.
Brian Chalkley's practice incorporates painting, performance and video work. His work has appeared in exhibitions including Nothing is Forever at South London Gallery, Dandyism and Contempt at Camden Space and Der Meschen Klee at the Kunst im Tunnel, Dusseldorf, Germany.
The course develops our students potential to operate as a professional artist within an international art community, or to progress to further academic research at PhD level.
Many students go on to set up their own studio practice, developing strong professional links with galleries and curators at national and international level.
Graduates from our MA Fine Art course include Turner Prize winning artists and nominees Peter Doig, Anish Kapoor, Mike Nelson, Mariella Neudecker, Andreas Oelhert, Stephen Pippin, Kimio Tsuchiya, Mark Wallinger and Rebecca Warren.
£1000 fee discount for University of the Arts London alumni.
