ART HISTORY AND CURATORIAL AND MUSEUM STUDIES
The Art Gallery of South Australia, in conjunction with the University of Adelaide, offers a unique graduate program in Art History and in Curatorial and Museum Studies.
Teaching is based around the collections and exhibition program of the Art Gallery. This exciting teaching approach, drawing on the expertise of the Art Gallery and the University, is an Australian first and is now in its eleventh year. Graduates of this nationally acclaimed program are now working in art institutions and galleries across the country.
In ‘hands-on’ sessions in the Art Gallery, students find out about works of art in the Art Gallery’s collection, how best to display them, why they are acquired and more.
Courses on offer in 2016 include Contemporary Art, Curatorial and Museum Studies, Indigenous Art, Portraiture and Power and Southeast Asian Art.
