About the Exhibit

The first step of the project was for the students to find an article in a current periodical that related in some way to issues of space and creative practice. From there, students identified possible directions and let their curiosity lead the way. In each node of research, they found new portals, and their investigations continued to branch in multiple directions. Students explored VCU Libraries' digital and special collections and stacks, consulted with off-campus libraries and museums, engaged in field research and conducted interviews. Here we see research as the project, taking the shape and form of the students' individual spirit of inquiry.
