MAKING HISTORIES VISIBLE
MA Fine Art Site & Archive Intervention
MA Fine Art Site & Archive Interventions aims to produce creative practitioners whose work already reflects a sense of historical documenting, mapping and cataloguing wishing to approach the interaction with audience and history from an inventive and strategic standpoint. It enables students to respond creatively to ‘place’ through a structured project, developing artwork presented to identified audiences at the researched site, archive or in alternative contexts.
MA in Fine Art offers Two Awards in Full-Time or Part-Time mode with an annual intake starting in September: MA Site and Archive Intervention runs in parallel with MA Fine Art Studio Practice. The MA Fine Art utilises the international profile of the staff research team and creates the possibilities for effecting dynamic shifts in cultural production. The employment opportunities today are greatly increased for post-graduate students suitably experienced as artists/arts professionals working in the expanded field of art practice, which is reflected in the content of this course.
The Post Graduate Programme gives students the opportunity to realise an ambitious ‘Fine Art Project’ to define and sustain a high level of professional practice supported by a ‘Contextual Report’ which undertake an analytical, critical and creative approach to theoretical formats. It also explores strategies for research publications to create potential employment opportunities, dissemination of practice and publicity networks.
The MA Fine Art has a modular structure providing students with the opportunity to research, plan, develop and realise an independent Post graduate Programme at first Post Graduate Certificate, Diploma and then at Master’s Level. The MA Modules in Fine Art encourage student interaction, sharing experience and participation and critical debate (Research methods Professional practice, Degree Project & Contextual Report) and 2 Specialist Introductory and Project development Modules.

About the Exhibition
The exhibition was held in the Centre for Contemporary Art, Preston in 2007. The pieces on show were lent by members of the black community to display different ways of visualising black people that were acceptable, aiming to add to the debate about black art theory and the history of black art.
The animations on show were abstract and the 'female' element of the exhibition, using the creative processes inherent in weaving, wall-painting and pattern making and transferring them into digital technology - shredding data to make abstract animations.
