Credit is a collaboration between Modern Forms, Central Saint Martins and Kingston School of Art. The project supports London’s emerging* art scene through creative, discursive and structural interventions.
Modern Forms is an art collection and curatorial platform dedicated to supporting contemporary art and culture. Modern Forms was founded by the British financier Hussam Otaibi (founder of Floreat Group) and is run by Curator Nick Hackworth.
Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, MA Culture, Criticism and Curation, launched in 2013, is a postgraduate course proposing that culture—as an intentionally broad and contested term—is a provocative starting point for practices of curating and critical writing. The course aims to teach students to think creatively and critically about different kinds of museums and curated spaces and what kinds of political and social systems they reflect. One of six courses in CSM’s Culture and Enterprise Programme, students on MA CCC join writers, creative practitioners and entrepreneurs in exploring the contexts and functions of culture and creativity.
Kingston School of Art, MA Art Business (formerly MA Art Market & Appraisal), draws out the significance of business skills in the broader context of art markets in a partnership between Kingston School of Art and Kingston Business School. The course prepares students to enter the art industry within ever-changing artistic, cultural and economic environments and to critique existing models. As such the course is developing a partnership with Credit that will support innovation and business skills for emerging* art scenes
