Visual Art Graduates 2014
The review of Educational institutions is important as the exit number and gender of graduates determines the size and make up of the pool of contemporary artists.
In Throsby & Hollister’s 2003 economic study of professional artists. Don’t give up your day job, 67% of visual art respondents nominated formal tertiary education as the most important training they undertake to become an artist (p30) while 15% were self-taught and 18% nominated other private training.
Our data collection on Educational Institutions found that those graduating with degrees in fine art or visual art in 2014 were 74% female and 26% male, while those with post-graduate degrees were 75% female and 25% male.
