Fine art at the University of Plymouth offers a unique opportunity for students to follow their own path through a range of subject areas and forms of expression. We offer a broad-based programme of study at undergraduate and postgraduate levels at the cutting edge of contemporary art practice.
Studio practice lies at the core of this, alongside the development of theoretical and research skills, underpinned by international trips, regular exhibitions, open studios and a talks programme of visiting artists, curators and critics (recently including Larry Achiampong & David Blandy, Cooking Sections, Theresa Gleadowe, Lars Bang Larson, Esther Leslie, Marie Lund, Huma Mulji, Aura Satz, Tommy Støckel, Suzanne Treister).
Together, this demonstrates the importance we place on active networks and collaborations as well as the desire to communicate to a wider public, not least through our ongoing collaborations with The Atlantic Project, KARST, and Plymouth Arts Centre, amongst others.
