NON TRADITIONAL RESEARCH OUTPUTS

ERA ELIGIBILITY AND QUALITY IN THE CREATIVE ARTS


5.4.9.6. Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and Events

The Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and Events research output type is specifically aimed at research outputs produced by curators rather than artists (although exhibition catalogues written by curators should be submitted as Original Creative Works, in the Textual work sub-category — see 5.4.9.3).

Where a curator is an eligible researcher, the curator may claim exhibitions, festivals and other events as research outputs. Artists may claim exhibitions of their original creative works under the Original Creative Works research output type (see 5.4.9.3), where the exhibition of the creative works is used as evidence that those works have been made publicly available.

Multiple exhibitions/events cannot be counted as multiple research outputs where the repeated exhibitions/events do not introduce a new research component to the work. For example, a touring exhibition can only be counted once.Multiple exhibitions/events may be counted where each subsequent exhibition/event introduces a new research component to the work that builds upon the initial research component of the original exhibition/event.

Recurring exhibitions and events may be submitted.For example, the Biennale of Sydney is a recurring event with each occurrence being unique rather than a repeat of the previous occurrence.

Sub-categories of Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and Events are as follows:

Research Output Description
Web based exhibition The curation and/or production of an internet website presenting a collection of creative works where the internet is themedium of the exhibited works.
Exhibition/Event The curation and/or production of a collection of creative works exhibited together for the first time, in that particular arrangement, in a recognised gallery, museum, or event. This should be accompanied by a well researched publication that includes the date and location of the exhibition.
Festival The curation of a festival bringing together innovative work or existing works in an innovative format or through a theme that provides new perspectives and/or experiences.
Other Curated or substantial public exhibitions and events that do not fit into the above sub-categories of the Curated or Produced Substantial Public Exhibitions and Events research output type.
