Hi Heather, how important is it to actually write about the space as the students write their curatorial rationale. In some examples, I see the students have written about the space and some haven't. Thank you!

Hi Sepi, they need to write about the arrangement of the works in the space, for some the space itself is important, for others its just the presentation of the artworks.
