Led by Dr. Victoria Walsh, the Curating Contemporary Art Master of Arts Programme at the Royal College of Art is internationally recognised for its commitment to and emphasis on collaborative, studio-based project work that integrates theory and practice throughout the two years of the curriculum.

The programme approaches the field critically, theoretically and through best practice in commissioning, exhibition-making, programming and writing with London-based and national arts venues. Through this approach, knowledge and understanding of these practices is grounded in the context of public audiences, globalisation and the digital.

Widely acknowledged as an important marker of current developments in contemporary art, the CCA MA exhibitions in the central London RCA galleries have become known for introducing new international artists to UK audiences and for their experimental approaches to working with artists including Neïl Beloufa, David Raymond Conroy, Aleksandra Dominovic, S Mark Gubb, Raphael Hefti, Jill Magid, Mosireen Collective, Shana Moulton, Hito Steyerl, Jack Strange, Patrick Hough, Jacob Kirkegaard, Lina Lepelyté, Liz Magic Laser, Hassan Meer, Nástio Mosquito, Laure Prouvost, Ryder Ripps, Alex Schweder, and Jon Wozencroft.

In the increasingly complex cultural environment in which curating takes place, practice and research-based teaching by staff and post-doctoral students ensures the curatorial significance, intellectual value and critical vitality of the MA programme. Recent staff exhibition and research projects include Art and Conflict (led by Michaela Crimmin); No Puppet is dumber than its Puppeteer at the Chinese Academy of Fine Arts Museum Biennale (led by Kit Hammonds); Richard Hamilton: Growth and Form at Tate Modern, Cultural Value and the Digital with Tate Research and Transfigurations: Curatorial and Artistic Research in an Age of Migrations at MACBA (led by Dr. Victoria Walsh). These research projects have brought together artists including Leo Asemota, Kader Attia, Camille Henrot, and Lawrence Abu Hamdan, with curators from Bétonsalon (Paris), MACBA (Barcelona), Whitechapel (London), and Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam).
Research applications are welcome throughout the year for students wishing to study beyond their Masters.



Expanding CCA’s ambitions and reputation as one of the most internationally significant curating programmes two new posts have also been created—Senior Tutor: Curatorial Theory and Senior Tutor: Theoretical Practice.
