The Programme: overview

The MA, supported by globally recognised artists, curators, critics and intellectuals, combines a sound training in the artistic production with highly specialized curatorial practice. Given the solid positioning of the Visual Arts Area within the contemporary art system, students face interdisciplinary activities to produce new exhibition models, questioned by an aesthetic, social, economic and philosophical point of view. 

Over the MA, students will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop advanced skills in painting, drawing, graphic design, video, photography, sound design, new media, and communication and organization of cultural activities
  • Acquire knowledge of the main research and theoretical methodologies of contemporary art and of the aesthetic and visual vocabulary to work with images
  • Produce and display artistic works and curatorial projects on a professional and
    international level
