Throughout my career I have used exhibitions to develop my research, my teaching and to support the works of colleagues and external collaborators. I approach exhibitions not as a rarefied opportunity to display work, though it can be that, but as a practical and effective means to generate, develop, assess and disseminate ideas and practices. Exhibitions come in many shapes and sizes offering various degrees of opportunity, but an exhibition of any kind offers the possibility to engage with a piece of work, a space and an audience. Exhibitions are a way of supporting practice, but they can also be a form of practice in their own right. In this text I will contextualise my own exhibition practice and show how it is part of wider set of aspirations that critically engage with research within the School of Art Design and Architecture and the development of cultural practices inthe town of Huddersfield.
