Each August the MFAs take over the fine art department developing freshly created works to install in the beautiful studio spaces spanning five floors.
The result is unique and often site-specific work that responds to the environment and makes the most out of the large-scale spaces that are often only available to mid-career artists. With the addition of the newly renovated Hatton Gallery space, this year’s current 13 Masters students are excited to showcase the results of their hard work. Maintaining a reputation as one of the UK’s leading centres for art education since the 1950s, Newcastle University has performed consistently well in student satisfaction polls and the Fine Art department is ranked number one in the U.K. in the Sunday Times University Guide.
The current Master of Fine Art programme is led and taught by leading practicing art professionals who nurture and encourage the best in creative innovation and rigour. An exciting visiting speaker programme of national and international eminent artists, curators and creative professionals engages critical discussions on practice in seminars, workshops and one to one tutorials.
