Program name: 
Art Curatorship

"The Master of Art Curatorship offers you a sophisticated awareness of the range of challenging cultural, theoretical, social, political and economic issues confronting gallery curators. A highly valued aspect of the course is the project-based internships supervised by industry professionals in local, national and international visual arts organisations which provide invaluable workplace experience, training and networking opportunities.

You will be trained to work as an art curator, educator, collection manager, administrator, critic, dealer and valuer. The course allows those already working in the sector, art teachers, advisors, curators, librarians, administrators, writers and gallery workers, to further develop their career prospects, while also serving as a career change option for those new to the field.

The course includes studies in art and curatorship (taught at the Art Gallery of New South Wales), the art museum: past, present, future, and the business of art."
