MScR in Collections and Curating Practices student visit
They managed to catch Karla Black's exhibition before it closed
On 20th October, the new cohort of students on the University of Edinburgh’s MScR in Collections and Curating Practices visited the Fruitmarket for the first time, just in time to catch the last few days of our Karla Black exhibition.
The Fruitmarket has been a partner on the Collections and Curating Practices course since it started in 2017, which was on hiatus last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Other partners on the course are the National Museums of Scotland, the National Galleries of Scotland, the National Library of Scotland, Talbot Rice Gallery and the University of Edinburgh Special Collections. The course aims to provide a bridge between theory and practice, capitalising on the research environment offered by the University, whilst also, through its partners, offering hands on institutional experience for those developing careers in museums and the arts.
It was exciting to welcome a new, international group of students just embarking on their Masters studies in Edinburgh. This year, the Fruitmarket will run sessions with the students on Writing Interpretation and Making Exhibitions, as well as offering advice and support on careers in contemporary art to students on the course.
