We understand that the shape and trajectory of your research may change as you make connections and develop your practice throughout the course of your research. We will work with you to develop the most appropriate – and generative – means of pursuing, documenting and disseminating your findings, as best befits your project. The Creative Curating programme is offered by the Goldsmiths, University of London.
It is important to note that the MPhil/PhD is not an extension of the MFA. The MFA is geared specifically to the development of your art practice, and is academically recognised as the terminal professional degree for fine artists.
Distinct from this, the MPhil/PhD in Art is a 3-4 year (full-time) or 6-8 year (part-time) research project, the pursuit of which may involve your already-established practice, or may require the development new modes of practice specific to the project.
The PhD is also distinct from ongoing studio practice or a residency. A PhD asks you to place your work in relation to that of other practitioners in a contemporary and/or historical context, be they artists or other cultural workers, philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, or others. In this respect, the model of the PhD encourages you to follow your curiosity for – and make connections with and between – the thought, work and action of others.
