Master of Fine ArtProgram details
RMIT offers a hub for emerging artists, researchers and practitioners to cultivate contemporary art practice and gain exposure through local and international exhibitions.
The Master of Fine Art is structured in a way that allows ample room for experimentation. You will be mentored and challenged by academic staff who are professional artists, writers, historians and curators to explore multiple media, conceptual tools and techniques, and narrow your focus down to the core of what you want to say as an artist.
Professional practice is offered in areas such as
- gold and silversmithing.
How you will learn
The RMIT Master of Fine Art is also delivered in Hong Kong. Visit the Hong Kong Art School for program information and to apply for this offering.
Master of Fine Art students attend the Tropical Lab intensive in Singapore every year, and RMIT hosts a seminar for staff and students from LaSalle Singapore in Melbourne.
The RMIT International Artists in Residence Program (iAIR) gives you opportunities to apply for overseas art residencies, which have placed previous students in East China Normal University in Shanghai, China; Krems, Austria; Tokyo Wondersite, Japan; and the University of Lethbridge, Canada.
The courses you will undertake are divided into three core streams:
- Studio Practice
- Creative Research
- Critical Frameworks.
Half of the program is dedicated to studio time, making your studio central to the learning environment. Individual studio practice will be complemented by guest lectures, workshops and studio visits by international and local industry professionals.
Your creative research will encourage you to explore new ways of creating and skills for continual innovation, while critical frameworks will help you to develop your knowledge in building a sustainable enterprise and practice around your art.
Galleries and exhibitions are regularly rotating and promoting the works of our students.
