The MFA Fine Art program at Goldsmiths helps 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. The MFA Fine Art inhabits a spacious studio complex in a converted Edwardian swimming baths at the centre 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 program is built around one-to-one tutorials and seminars with permanent staff complemented by visiting artists, writers and thinkers chosen by the students themselves. 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 program 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.
