Fine Art at NTU
We approach contemporary fine art with a collaborative ethos, working with you to grow your conceptual practice, theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical skills. Our philosophy is simple: be curious, experiment, reflect and repeat. We’ll give you the freedom to investigate and explore how your work contributes to, and challenges, critical debates in art and society, honing your skills and outlook, and learning what matters most to your own practice.
