Fine Art at MADA strives to be the most progressive and experimental art school in the country. We have created an intense interdisciplinary community for students and researchers that is inclusive, diverse, critical and impactful.

We believe that the best people to teach future generations of artists, curators, art historians and art workers are those that are most actively engaged in the various disciplines that form the culture of visual art here in Australia and overseas. The artists and scholars that make up our staff profile are a formidable selection of these figures. Indeed the Fine Art department at MADA is the highest ranked school for research in the country and offer students access to a network of ideas, skills and opportunities, whether this emanates out of individual studio practice, collaborative projects, writing and theory workshops or technical instruction.
