MICA Curatorial Practice M.F.A.
MICA's M.F.A. in Curatorial Practice will prepare students to take a responsible approach to the expanding role curators play in creating a vibrant cultural life in the 21st century's global society. Designed to forge connections among art, artists, and the community, the program's collaborative and individual curatorial projects allow students to explore new methods of exhibition presentation—thinking outside of traditional models and training to create relevant, timely and accessible exhibitions for their audiences. New models will include considering the surrounding community or history of the venue as inspiration when organizing exhibitions. This innovative graduate program is the first M.F.A. in Curatorial Practice in the United States.
