This talk, in the context of Artistic Research as part of The Making of an Institution will look at Rosemary Forde’s year-long curatorial project Art holds a high place in my life | Damp: study of an artist at 21 that took place on campus at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia throughout 2016. This programme experimented with modes of shared ownership and shifts between public and closed display. Situated in the context of an art school within the university, it also aimed to explore ways in which initiated curatorial activities could be brought closer together with the research and learning practices of the institution.
This talk is part of the public programme of The Making of an Institution.
