Live and breathe the subject of your passion at the McNally School of Fine Arts. Named after our founder the late Brother Joseph McNally, the School offers contemporary practice and research-based programmes at the Diploma, BA(Hons) and MA levels. It is focused on redefining the milieu of artistic research dedicated to Southeast Asia, and our position in the world of contemporary art.
From sculpture, printmaking, drawing, installation and photography to technology-based art, performance art, interdisciplinary art, as well as critical studies in art history and art theory, our programmes are imbued with an innovative and interdisciplinary structure, designed to provide you with a transformative learning experience that awakens your artistic potential and develops your critical rigour.
This is bolstered by the mutual interaction between the School’s different programmes, which creates a dynamic environment that foments a symbiosis of theory and practice.
During the course of your studies, you can depend on our staff of renowned practitioners to provide guidance and inspiration. Having been represented in world-class exhibitions such as Venice Biennale, Asia-Pacific Triennial, Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art, APB Foundation Signature Art Prize, Documenta (International Workshop for Art Academies), and Singapore Biennale, they bring vast and diverse learning experiences into the studio and classroom.
