Friday 14 May 2010, 10.00 – 18.30
Drinks 18.30 – 19.30

The exhibition is increasingly being reframed as a ‘research output’, but what can new forms of research and collaboration bring to the concept and curatorship of the exhibition? Is the idea of the exhibition being distorted or creatively extended by new disciplinary practices and knowledge? In what ways do new forms of research exhibitions create new types of knowledge and experience for the audience?
