BxNU Master of Fine Art

Updated: 20 May 2021

Would you like to explore the world-making capacities of creative research? Today, artists are innovators not simply as individual producers but also as institution-builders, project managers, technical inventors, curators, educators, community workers and equality activists.

The BxNU Master of Fine Art, offered in partnership between BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Northumbria University, Newcastle focuses upon fine art as an exploratory form of research activity driving the creation of new forms of aesthetic expression and social connectedness. It looks toward the future of cultural work as diverse, networked and socially transformative.

The programme offers expert guidance on the development of your art practice in a research-rich environment with an internationally renowned faculty of artists, curators and writers. There is a focus on critical reflection and materials-led practice, learning both singly and through experiences of co-production and group performance and supported by access to leading resources through collective studios, public-facing project spaces and outstanding technical facilities. Students participate in a dynamic research exchange with BALTIC curatorial and educational staff, behind-the-scenes talks with visiting artists and in exhibition presentations providing invaluable experience of open forms of cultural exchange characteristic of the city and region.

Eligibility: A minimum of a 2:2 honours degree in a related subject. Applicants with appropriate work experience and/or a relevant professional qualification will be considered, as well as those without a degree or a degree in an unrelated subject.

What you get out of it: 2 years full-time studies, Postgrad
