MA Fine Art is an exciting and ambitious programme of study and one that will accelerate your practical, technical and conceptual understanding of your practice. Founded in 1845 the University has a strong reputation as one of the leading art schools in the UK. With expert tuition and outstanding facilities, workshops and studio space you will be supported to extend or challenge your existing knowledge and methodologies.
You will join a community of tutors, researchers, visiting industry guests and fellow students and be part of a stimulating and active research environment. You may elect to specialise in or combine areas including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and installation. Your tutors are all established practising artists who regularly exhibit and/or contribute to conferences and publications.
Strong links with regional and national galleries provide platforms for dialogue around contemporary practice, supported by visiting artists and the Fine Art lecture series. The Gallery at NUA provides a showcase for high quality public exhibitions that augment the MA Fine Art experience. Eastinternational was staged here between 1991-2009, and more recently The Gallery has showcased work by artists including: Grayson Perry, Gilbert and George, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Damien Hirst, Jeremy Deller and Rachel Whiteread. The annual Fine Art symposium ‘Dialogues’ supports your professional understanding of contemporary Fine Art practice.
Practice-led investigation is fundamental to the course supported by critical dialogue and research.
