Overview

The Master of Arts in Curatorial Practice at Chulalongkorn University promotes transdisciplinary methodology in the field of curating, embracing design with visual and performing arts.  The programme brings together an international list of leading art professionals in curatorial practices to bring into the classes contemporary culture and creative expression from the art world.  The programme aims to equip curatorial practitioners with the interdisciplinary rigours necessary to develop a 21st century transnational mindset.  Internships and curatorial discourse, both key components of the programme, will provide hands-on experience for candidates to work with globally established curators within Asia and across the globe.

Conveniently located in the city center, the faculty is a stone’s throw away from prominent cultural events.  Another strength of the MA in Curatorial Practice programme is the partnership and collaboration with leading local and international organisations and institutions.
