Postgraduate studies in Fine Art at Kent offer you an energetic, challenging and open framework in which to explore your artistic practice. The programme welcomes independent thinkers who seek to develop their practice in a discursive environment that brings together a diverse set of attitudes to making and producing art work in contemporary culture. As a student, you are encouraged to realise your creative and intellectual potential within your discipline informed by specialists within your field.
This programme develops your creative, critical and independent practice within interdisciplinary sound and image work. The programme encompasses artist’s film, audio-visual works, installations, interactive and multimedia works.
It is designed to provide you with knowledge and skills in advanced practice-based research; you explore the creation and analysis of audio-visual works, taking into account major artistic developments over the past few decades. Seminars and workshops cover the history and repertoire of recent developments in audio-visual work as well as evaluating the significance of collaborative and interdisciplinary practices. Technical and craft-based workshops supplement the theoretical materials covered, in order to support you in the development of specialist practical skills.
The Departments of Fine Art and Music have cutting-edge facilities which include audio-visual edit suites, a spatial audio studio, Foley studio, rehearsal spaces, a flagship recording studio, large-scale digital printing and the newly renovated Boiler House Workshop. In addition, the Music and Audio Arts Sound Theatre (MAAST), a collection of high-quality loudspeakers, controllers and interfaces for the diffusion of sound, is one of the best in the UK.
