MA Culture, Criticism and Curation Final Projects
November - December 2018
Working in partnership with international and national organisations, artists, designers and writers, students devised a publication and a series of exhibitions and events that consider activism and representability, identity and the self, gender and work, community and experience.
"The projects emphasise the power of curating to ‘multiply’ and build interest around big ideas through collaboration with creative practitioners and organisations. We feel excited by the ambition and rigour of this year’s projects and are happy to share them with you." - Alison Green, Course Leader
