MFA Art in the Contemporary World

Art in the Contemporary World (ACW) is Ireland’s leading taught Masters Program at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin. Our students are avid researchers whose focus is to advance a project with the aim of understanding, interrogating, and expanding the role of contemporary practices and their contexts. Graduates have gone on to receive international awards and residencies, to take up respected curatorial positions and to publish their writings in prominent academic journals and art magazines.

ACW is led by Francis Halsall, Declan Long and Sarah Pierce.
