This PhD research project presents the curatorial model of the ‘exhibition as study’. This methodology is one that leverages its pedagogical setting and tools, to directly address and engage small, localised audience groups. Through practice, the research has presented what I term a ‘study’ of the Melbourne artist group Damp (established 1995).The PhD presented the curatorial project 'Art holds a high place in my life | Damp: study of an artist at 21' which took place on the Monash University Caulfield campus throughout the 2016 academic year. Rather than a monographic exhibition, the ‘study’ models an alternative version of the retrospective survey.
