Exhibitions are a unique mode of learning, research and engagement. Exhibitions enable the emergence of sites for theoretical exploration, kinaesthetic learning and creation of multiple narratives. Exhibition making is a creative practice involving different modes of expression including drawing, writing, speaking and making. ‘Making the Vertical Studio Exhibition’ unit made a critical contribution to the Vertical Studio exhibition. The unit developed exhibition strategies by engaging a range of different audiences through a participatory method. Through this unit, the students learned research techniques, collaboration and communication skills to develop exhibitions.
