In the contemporary art world, as the boundaries between fine art practices are crossed, so too are the distinctions between artist, theorist and curator. The Fine Art and Art History (Hons) course from Manchester Metropolitan University also offers a curating pathway, allowing students to explore exhibition-making in its own right and as a form of artistic practice.
As part of the undergraduate programmes in art theory and practice, the course shares much of its teaching with BA (Hons) Art History and Curating, and students from the two courses collaborate on projects and exhibition making. It is taught by a multidisciplinary team of practising artists, art historians, curators and theorists.
The course allows students to develop into informed, critically capable art practitioners, able to take their place as professionals in the arts and the wider cultural industries. The course also offers students the opportunity of enhancing their employability through placement and overseas study years.
This course is appropriate for careers in a range of cultural roles such as artist, curator, journalist, arts manager, gallery assistant, teacher, as well being appropriate for postgraduate study.
