Launched in 2010-11 and taking place over one semester, the Residency in Contemporary Art Theory and Curating is offered by invitation to a scholar and/or curator whose body of work has contributed to advancing the field of contemporary art research.
MSc Modern Art: History, Criticism, Curating and the Postgraduate Research Programme
History of Art, The University of Edinburgh
The Residency is intended to be an essential part of the Department’s research culture and an integral component of MSc Modern Art as well as the Postgraduate Research Programme overall.
In particular, the Residency is intended to promote a more experimental, genuinely dialogical and mutually beneficial experience between postgraduate students and experts in their field of study.
The resident art theorist/curator will have an opportunity to present and discuss his/her work and ideas with staff and students as well as to debate key and emerging trends in contemporary art theory and curating.
The resident will also have the chance to network with Edinburgh art institutions, while the use of the Residency as a starting point for future projects is strongly encouraged.
