MA Contemporary Arts China

CCVA’s new MA Contemporary Arts China launches in September 2016. The first of its kind in Europe, it aims to foster innovative perspectives and new understandings of Chinese contemporary art, design, visual culture and contemporary China, through transdisciplinary practice, research training and professional development.

The course provides a unique opportunity for students to develop their own research and practice whilst gaining professional experience by working with our internationally renown partners, leading arts organisations, curators and practitioners, participating in seminars, residencies and live research projects in UK, China and internationally. It is ideal for recent graduates, curators, artists, designers, art historians, writers and more, who have the ambition to become active, globally-minded, research-led creative practitioners, researchers and professionals in the field of contemporary arts.

Our partner organisations include: Academy of International Visual Arts (AIVA, Shanghai), Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (Manchester), Chronus Arts Center (Shanghai), Guangdong Museum of Art (Guangzhou), Ikon Gallery (Birmingham), New Art Exchange (Nottingham), OCAT (Xi’an), OCAT (Shanghai), Open Eye Gallery (Liverpool), Primary (Nottingham), Swarovski (Wattens in Austria), Tate Liverpool (Liverpool), Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art (Beijing) and many others to come.
