University of the Arts London: MA Transnational Arts

University of the Arts London
MA Workshop with Anna Maria Maiolino,May 2008

As a cross-disciplinary course, prospective students may apply with practice-based or solely written research projects. Individual study is complemented by seminars, lectures, tutorials and workshops; specialist lectures are delivered by the scholars and practitioners attached to the research centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation (TrAIN), and are organised under themes including: Exhibiting the Nation; Identity, Authenticity and Materials; and Migration and the Context of the Transnational.

Part of the University of the Arts London, the TrAIN Research Centre is a forum for historical, theoretical, and practice-based research in the arts. Directed by Professors Toshio Watanabe, Oriana Baddeley and Deborah Cherry, TrAIN involves internationally recognised scholars and practitioners based at three UAL colleges: Camberwell College of Arts, Chelsea College of Art & Design and Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design.

Other than its graduate programmes TrAIN supports regular public and pedagogical events and fosters collaborations with institutions and individuals internationally. Previous guest speakers include Moacir dos Anjos, Ricardo Basbaum, Guy Brett, TJ Demos, Charles Esche, Cildo Meireles, Kobena Mercer and Gilane Tawadros.

The Centre frequently collaborates with institutions and galleries on conferences and symposia, the most recent being ‘Exhibitions and the World at Large’ with Tate Britain (April 2009) and ‘Fashioning Diasporas’ with the Victoria & Albert Museum (May 2009).
