Collections and Curating Practices

MScR in Collections and Curating Practices

Fruitmarket is a partner on the University of Edinburgh’s MScR in Collections and Curating Practices, a unique programme that combines theory with hands on experience and outstanding local arts and heritage expertise. Every academic year, our staff contributes to core teaching on curating, publishing, fundraising and writing in a contemporary art gallery context.

Every few years we host a Guided Research Placement, which takes place over the first two semesters of the academic year. During this placement, a group of students from the course works with us on a particular project. As part of this placement, students may have the opportunity to curate performances, workshops, talks and other events.

Other partners on the programme include the National Galleries of Scotland, National Library of Scotland, National Museums of Scotland, and the University of Edinburgh’s own Collections and museums, including St Cecilia’s Hall and Talbot Rice Gallery.
