The Ruskin's graduating BFA and MFA students will present their final Degree Shows in a collaborative exhibition at the School's Bullingdon Road studios on the weekend of Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 June, and Wednesday 20 June.
The BFA is a three-year, studio-based course in which students work alongside each other in collaboratively organised studios. It allows students to engage with the diversity of disciplines that shape contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, installation, video, sound, performance and other experimental forms.
The Ruskin's next Open Days will be on 27 and 28 June 2018, and then on 14 September 2018. We look forward to meeting you!
The Ruskin, as the department of Fine Art at the University of Oxford, rarely ever leaves the top spot in the Art & Design subject table, and this year the School has proved itself again.
The Ruskin MFA degree is an intensive, interdisciplinary programme in the practice of contemporary art, designed to support studio-based and theoretical components of your artistic practice.
The Ruskin offers a selection of short courses during the summer vacation (July - September) for small groups. The programme includes a unique variety of subjects, from Human Anatomy to Chinese Calligraphy and Painting, and teaching is via masterclass, workshops, talks and group crits, with visits to local museums, private collections and gardens.
Ruskin Alumna and current Visiting Tutor Jaimini Patel is participating in a group exhibition: 'Every Object is a Thing but not every thing is an object' which continues until 19 May.
The Ruskin DPhil programme includes two strands: the practice-led DPhil (which includes a substantial written component) and the contemporary art history and theory DPhil (by written thesis only).
Research is at the heart of the Ruskin's activities, and the School encourages and values the wide-ranging contributions that its teaching staff, teaching staff, postgraduate students, researchers, academic visitors and fellows make to the disciplines of of fine art practice, curatorship, criticism and art history.
