The MA Curating offers a practical and theoretical training in devising and curating exhibitions alongside working towards the preparation of an exhibition at Essex’s Art Exchange gallery. This course combines practice, theory and histories of curating in equal measure. Students will develop essential base skills for a successful exhibition – from object handling to managing exhibition budgets – through visiting lectures by active museum professionals; practical workshops using Essex’s on-site collection and galleries; and competitive placements at leading institutions. Through this course, students will develop their confidence in the history and theory of exhibition-making, studying with academics who besides being active curators are producing new key texts on the curatorial history and theory. Topics explored in this MA include: How an exhibition can be used as a means of social or political critique; The historical role that museums have played in society; Participation and social engagement between spectators, artists and curators; A choice of history of art options.
