The Master of Arts degree in Curatorial Practice at the School of Visual Arts is a two-year program that focuses on intensive professional training, with a thorough grounding in the study of art and exhibition history, research, and theory. The SVA faculty includes leading curators at major institutions both in New York and internationally. See the faculty here.
Students come from around the world to learn in SVA’s state-of-the-art space near the Chelsea neighborhood, with its hundreds of galleries. They have the opportunity to produce numerous funded exhibitions and curatorial projects, as well as having internships at prominent institutions across the globe. Students have a chance to develop a network of contacts with more than 60 international curatorial professionals who join as guests in special sessions during the two years of the program. Students can also do second internships at the major museums in New York. The programming introduces topics of professional interest and the further opportunity to meet visiting artists and experts, while the city itself offers countless possibilities to create working relationships with artists and experience the city’s immense cultural offerings.
A schedule of upcoming events includes a newly commissioned performance by Christian Nyampeta, discussions about the complex cultural situations in Egypt, Lebanon, and Greece, new formats for curatorial thinking, and documentary production in contemporary art.
