Research statement This research project investigates how the shaping of a site-specific curatorial frame might lead to the production of innovative temporary public artworks. Responding to an invitation to curate an art project for the European Cultural Centre in conjunction with the Venice Biennale, this research sought to extend existing understandings of curatorial practice as a key modality for researching place-based cultural investigation. Using the device of a 'provocation' as a way of focusing artistic response, Venetian Blind investigated the potential of a thematic constraint as an effective mechanism for making coherent group-based exhibitions. The research includes 6 meta- outputs produced over six months produced by 23 researchers and HDR candidates as well as numerous smaller outputs produced by each group of researchers. An important focus of the investigation was how it might be possible to capture temporary public artworks within a gallery-based context. To this end, the research offered a framework for how ephemeral art production might be captured and documented within an exhibition model. A number of additional exhibition outputs have extended out from the original project in Venice to include showings of the work at Deakin Art Gallery and as part of the public art project Treatment Three in Melbourne. The project also sought to develop new knowledge in the field of creative arts PhD studies by embedding six HDR researchers into the six project teams of established.researchers. We specifically asked how might a collaborative curatorial research project build new knowledge and professional practice expertise for HDR candidates working in the field and how might a fieldwork model of candidate and researcher transform the supervisory model of creative arts learning, Venetian Blind was presented as part of the 58th Venice Biennale by European Cultural Centre at Palazzo Bembo in Venice.
