The MA Art History and Theory is ideal for students who are interested in working in academia, the art world or any other field in which visual, written and analytical skills are essential. Topics which will be covered in this MA include Early Modern art and architecture; the history of photography; modern and contemporary art; curatorial practice and exhibition design; as well as more vernacular forms of visual culture, such as body art and activist placards. The School of Philosophy and Art History, where this MA is based in, will facilitate students’ critical engagements with artworks and forms of visual culture, both within and beyond the traditional canons of art history. To supplement classroom learnings, the School will also facilitate frequent staff-led visits to London museums and galleries which will expose students to the some of the world’s best museums and galleries. Students will be strongly encouraged to apply for a placement in order to gain experience in the museum and gallery world. On campus, ESCALA, one of Europe’s most significant collections of contemporary art from Latin America, will provide an invaluable resource for studying art and curatorial practice first-hand.
