Meet Dr Juliet Hacking, Senior Lecturer in Photography at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, and get an up-close experience of our Master’s program in contemporary art as taught in our London campus. This session will include a lecture by Dr Hacking on contemporary photography, followed by a study visit to a world-class contemporary art gallery in London. Get a taste of what you will learn during the MA program, develop skills of observation and description and explore how themes are connected with artistic contexts and the networks in which art is created, bought, collected and exhibited.
