VCA ART 2020

Master of Contemporary Art

The Master of Contemporary Art program serves as a bridge between undergraduate study and independent art practice. This coursework program prepares students to develop a professional art practice, situate their practice within contemporary art contexts, and gain important networks in a supportive community of staff, artists and industry professionals. The course encourages experimentation, speculation and engaged dialogue with staff and students in an independent studio setting. In the second year, students identify an area of research to investigate and undertake a year-long studio project. Throughout the degree, students undertake a range of professional opportunities including graduate intensives, group and solo exhibitions, and local and international travel.
