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 âhands-onâ sessions in the Art Gallery, students find out about works of art in the Art Galleryâs collection, how best to display them, why they are acquired and more.
Courses on offer in 2014 include Contemporary Art, Curatorial and Museum Studies, Interrogating Australian Colonial Art, Modern Australian Art and European Art: Renaissance to Revolution.
Prospective online offerings with virtual gallery sessions include Australian Art, Australian Indigenous Art, European Art: Renaissance to Revolution and Japanese Art. These courses are on offer for rural, remote and time-poor students, and for those studying on campus.
