Painting defines its practice through the particularities of the painted field. The making materiality of the unique object, a globally acknowledged cultural history and the dedicated and dynamic relationship of the painted object to the painter. Painting in the 21st century is vital and relevant. Contemporary painting and what it can be, do and declare is meaningful. We ask how, why and according to what means.
The MA Painting course will explore this innovative and expansive territory in depth, dedicating itself to specialist study at postgraduate level.
Enjoying a growing resurgence in the last decade, recent exhibitions such as Painters’ Painters at the Saatchi Gallery and upcoming Radical Figures: Painting in the New Millennium at the Whitechapel gallery demonstrate a renewed interest in painting and acknowledgement of its unique and innovative position within contemporary visual practice.
Painting defines its particular practice through the peculiarities of the painted field; the making materiality of the unique object; a globally acknowledged cultural history; the dedicated and dynamic relationship of the painted object to the painter. The MA Painting course will explore this innovative and expansive territory in-depth, dedicating itself to specialist study at postgraduate level.
This specialism is reflected in the course content, delivery and dedicated studio/workshop facilities. Staffed by leading practitioners and academics, focused painting technicians and visiting experts in the field; delivering a programme built upon the cross-fertilisation of practical application with an understanding of contemporary painting discourse. Further engagement with practicing artists, art world professionals and partner institutions will enable a connected and informed master’s student. You will, through individual studio practice and a dedicated programme, come to an advanced level of understanding of both painting theory and application whilst mapping your position within this territory.
This course looks to establish a new and distinctive voice in Fine Art study, both nationally and through collaborative ventures, internationally.
