Fine Art MA
The MA Fine Art is a unique opportunity to study contemporary art practice at postgraduate level while benefiting from the relevance and visibility that comes from working with the North West’s world-class cultural networks.
The course is built around three core elements: studio practice, a research residency and contemporary theory in the arts. You will be supported to re-evaluate and develop your existing practice through individual tutorials and 24/7 access to dedicated studio facilities, with one-to-one tutorials, technical support, visiting artist talks, and weekly seminar and reading group sessions. Your work will be supervised by practicing artists from Lancaster’s fine art team, covering a wide range of disciplines including specialisms in drawing, painting, new media, installation, site-specific, socially-engaged, performance, and art writing.
Based on your area of interest you will spend a specialised period of residency and dialogue with a festival, gallery, archive or site. Suitable placements will be arranged by students in negotiation with tutors building on our wide network of relationships in the region eg The Ruskin Museum, Eden Project North, Liverpool Biennial, Keswick Museum, Department of Biomedical Sciences and the Centre for Mobilities Research. You will develop a body of experimental or preliminary art works in relation to the residency which will inform the final Fine Art Major Project module. The residency is supported through weekly group crits and tutorials in the studio.
The course also includes bespoke opportunities to develop interdisciplinary work, through residencies and elective modules in other departments eg media and communications, sociology, mobilities research, creative writing, biomedicine, physics and others.
