There are many different ways in which research creates a presence in the public realm. Curatorial practice offers a different approach to the more familiar forms of academic publication. It provides an intersection between research and public display which opens up new avenues of consideration. The exhibition offers a location for not just the visual and theoretical exploration of a subject, but also an experiential one. It could be the method used for the dissemination of a particular theme or for the work of an individual artist/designer, it might also be the format of the exhibition itself and the subsequent museological framing which becomes a potential source of research.
