Exhibition Research Lab is the first academic centre and contemporary art  gallery in the UK dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of exhibitions  and curatorial knowledge. Founded in 2012 as part of Liverpool School of Art and Design, the Exhibition Research Lab is uniquely positioned across academic and the cultural ecology of Liverpool, underpinned by collaborative posts held by staff with Tate LiverpoolFACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), RIBA North (The Royal Institute of British Architects), and Liverpool Biennial.

Exhibition Research Lab extends the traditional remit of an art gallery as a site for display or pedagogical resource, to an expanded gallery or ‘lab’ where experimental thinking and  making takes place, and where artistic and curatorial knowledge is enacted, produced and made public.
