The MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths is currently welcoming applications for 2015 entry.

The MFA Fine Art programme at Goldsmiths help students acquire a critical understanding of the creation and reception of contemporary art. Theory and practice are fully integrated with a strong emphasis on open discussion, peer-to-peer learning and the potential of each student to develop their abilities to the fullest. Goldsmiths is located in New Cross Gate, one of London’s most vibrant and interesting areas for emerging art and design.

The Department has a full compliment of state of the art workshops and laboratories staffed by fully qualified technicians. All MFA students have full access to the labs and workshops. We also provide projects spaces and encourage students to develop their own exhibitions and projects both in and outside the College.

The MFA Fine Art inhabits a spacious studio complex in a converted Edwardian swimming baths at the center of the Goldsmiths campus. Students set their own objectives and goals for their MFA, with a view to developing a coherent and sustainable individual practice.

The programme is built around one-to-one tutorials and seminars with permanent staff, including John Chilver, Nick Crowe, Ros Gray, Andy Harper, Joseph Kosuth, Mark Leckey, David Mabb, Michael Newman, Simon Martin, Lindsay Seers, Ben Seymour, Kate Smith, Mike Sperlinger, Jemima Stehli and Milly Thompson. This is complemented by visiting artists, writers and thinkers chosen by the students themselves. These include Ed Atkins, Nicolas Bourriaud, Simon Fujiwara, Isaac Julien, Darian Leader, Renzo Martens, Laure Prouvost, Dmitry Vilensky/Chto Delat and Ian Wallace. Intellectual engagement with contemporary theory is facilitated though tutorials, lectures, seminars, workshops and reading groups.

Our student-centred approach to teaching aims at helping students become artists who are independent, articulate, confident and self-motivated.

The ethos is interdisciplinary, with students working together across disciplines. The programme encourages students to engage with issues related to what it means to work as an artist today, and to reflect upon their practice in light of art’s complex history and its role in wider social and cultural processes. We offer a supportive, highly engaged environment for study and artistic development at the heart of London’s art world.

Apply here.
