This guide includes resources to support your curatorial work and exhibition development.
Research is a crucial part of exhibition development. How have artists, artworks, or themes been discussed (or ignored) by others? What does your exhibition have to say?
Through research, you can build an understanding of the people, networks, movements, and histories that surround artists and artworks. This will underpin your analysis of individual works and themes, and can help you to understand what experiences or expectations audiences or other artists might bring to your exhibition.
If you have questions or need help with any of these resources, please reach out. I'm here to help!
