Master of Visual Studies in Curatorial Studies
Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, University of Toronto

Application Deadline: April 30, 2018

The MVS Curatorial Studies Program experience evolves within a rich environment of study, teaching assistantships, internships and mentorship within the internationally renowned Daniels Faculty in collaboration with the Art Museum at the University of Toronto. Structured around contemporary approaches to curatorial practices, students immerse in recent developments in the visual arts, theory, and critical writing, as well as drawing on an array of interdisciplinary offerings, to support their research interests and curatorial engagement. In particular, the program focuses on the presentational challenges arising from the diverse and complex modes of contemporary art -- from material and historical artefacts to installation, from performance to image, text, sound, and digital media – within the broader context of contemporary global culture.

Guided by MVS Curatorial Studies faculty, which includes the Director of the Art Museum, program participants will examine histories and theories of the burgeoning curatorial field as well as developments in contemporary art and theory. The course of study affords students the opportunity to work with diverse faculty members from across the University of Toronto in an interdisciplinary context, to participate in internships at a local and international level, and to engage the mentorship of practicing professionals in the field. Supported by the Reesa Greenberg Curatorial Studies Award and the Curatorial Studies program, students take part in travel to see major exhibitions within the region and internationally. Significantly, the program offers students the opportunity to produce their own Graduating Exhibition for public presentation within the professional context of the Art Museum on the downtown campus of the University of Toronto, and at the centre of Canada’s largest city.

As a result of the highly respected degree from the University of Toronto, access to a sustained professional network and mentorships, and the outstanding support of Graduating Exhibitions, graduates of our program continually achieve successful curatorial careers and institutional positions in Canada and internationally. They include Curator, Indigenous Art at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Executive Director of the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba, Director of Education & Public Programs at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Grants and Sponsorships Officer at The Power Plant, and directorial and curatorial positions at Contemporary Art Institutions, Foundations, and Artist Run Centres across Canada and around the world.
