Department of Art

Department of Art

In the Department of Art we specialise in making, curating and writing about contemporary art in a dynamic, critical and interdisciplinary environment.

We have a world leading reputation that brings together students and researchers from all over the world. We work with a network of artists, curators, galleries and museums both in London and internationally to create an inspiring and dynamic place in which to study and develop an artistic practice.

Many graduates of Goldsmiths Department of Art are among the most recognised names working in art today.
