The Master’s Degree in Modern and Contemporary Asian Art provides students with critical tools for understanding the growing field of Asian art. It will enable them to appreciate how Asian art has developed in the modern and contemporary period in relation to its complex historical backdrop and artistic sensibilities for application in the professional art world. It is anticipated that there will be an increasing need for professionals with Asian art expertise in museums, galleries, art fairs and biennials. This MA will address this need by equipping students with skills for a high degree of employability in public and private art institutions and dealerships worldwide.
Students on this programme will be looking to specialise in the diverse and exciting field of modern and contemporary Asian art. They will contribute to a growing area of expertise in the international art world, where Asia and Asian art play an increasingly significant role. This MA programme is suitable for students with a first degree in art history or other relevant degree, or a strong demonstrable interest in the culture of Asia. Graduates of this programme take up a range of positions in galleries, art fairs, museums, and auction houses, working in major cultural centres around the world. Graduates may also embark on doctoral studies for deeper specialisation towards an academic career or a museum curatorship.
All of the MA programmes are enhanced by a core curriculum, Navigating the Art World, which introduces students to the global art world and provides them with a comprehensive knowledge of art business principles and professional skills as well as critical understanding to mobilise at the completion of their degrees.
