MA Curating the Art Museum

Every year, students on The Courtauld Institute of Art's MA programme Curating the Art Museum are given the opportunity to curate an exhibition at The Courtauld Gallery.

The MA students are given an open brief to bring together works from The Courtauld's collection and The Arts Council Collection, working together on all aspects of exhibition-making, from research and budget planning to interpretation and promotional activity.

Curating the Art Museum is aimed at art curators of the future. Its purpose is to extend and develop graduates' art historical interests, expertise and scholarship into the area of curatorship.
