Kingston School of Art, invites students to apply for admission to its Fine Art MFA starting in autumn 2021. The course is a full time, two-year, studio-based programme.

The new MFA in Fine Art at Kingston School of Art offers a unique blend of studio and theoretical training. While on the programme you will develop your practice as an artist while critically reflecting on and locating that practice within a changing social, political and cultural context. You will have the opportunity to take one art theory module with the world-renowned Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), and work across a range of media, taking advantage of the School’s new cutting-edge workshops.

Through a student-centred approach to teaching and learning you will be encouraged to work on individual projects as well as experiment with collaborative modes of production and exhibition, developing relevant artistic and curatorial strategies both within the field of contemporary art and across broader cultural contexts. A programme of lectures, studio seminars and personal tutorials will connect you to a network of artists, curators, writers and gallerists as you explore what it means to make art in the 21st century.

Current faculty: Jo Addison, Dan Kidner, Mike Nelson, Peter Osborne, Elizabeth Price, Morgan Quaintance, Alexis Teplin and Roman Vasseur.

Recent guest lecturers and speakers: Ed Atkins, Helen Cammock, Mandy El-Sayegh, N. Katherine Hayles, Mark Leckey, Every Ocean Hughes, Amalia Pica, Prem Sahib, Patrick Staff, Leslie Thornton, Zoé Whitley, Issy Wood and Abbas Zahedi.
