The group exhibition Following A Line was titled as “in following a line of investigation.” But here the line had no delineated starting or end point. Through lectures, films, PowerPoint presentations, archival images and signage, the works in this group exhibition in some way challenged these instructive forms and educational methods of presenting information.

The difficulty of representing knowledge, and the need to demonstrate one’s understanding was common to the work in Following A Line. Many of the artists in this exhibition worked from an archive of images and texts, which they had compiled over years of research, but it wasn’t essential to any of the artists to make this explicit or to lay out their research in an accessible form. Research can be defined as a search for knowledge or any systematic collection of information that is applied to a particular subject or a more general system of understanding. Research-based is a term that is frequently used to describe a type of art practice that focuses on the terms of research, using them as strategies for making art that both challenges the conventions of how information is gathered and presented.
