Exhibitions: Histories, Practices
The research focus of this group considers exhibitions and curating, inside and outside the museum and the gallery space, as a way to examine the validity of claims these practices make for contemporary art and as a means to analyse their effects, historically and in the present.
Group Convenor: Dr Lucy Steeds
