The University of Oxford’s Ruskin School of Art and the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics (DPAG) jointly present this exhibition, 'The Art of Anatomy', to celebrate the happy relationship that the Ruskin has enjoyed with DPAG for over forty years, and to explore the continuing relationship between artistic and scientific study, and of how art transforms anatomy, both historically and in contemporary practice. The exhibition will open on Saturday 14 July in the galleries at Kendrew Barn, in St John’s College, which is hosting the Anatomical Society’s Summer Meeting 23rd-25th July, 2018.
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 Day will be on Friday 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.
The Ruskin is delighted that Brook Andrew, who joined the School's DPhil Programme in 2017, has been appointed Artistic Director of the 22nd edition of the Biennale of Sydney.
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).
The Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford invites expressions of interest from postdoctoral and completing graduate scholars who wish to apply for the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme, for entry in 2019.
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.
