Abstract: 

The findings of this article suggest that a productive and potentially sustainable space for audience 'interactivity' can be constructed in the interstices between the art museum and the university art and design context. The article interrogates two key case studies: the first centred on the 2008 Bienniale of Sydney: 'Revolutions - Forms that Turn' and the second a symposium organised to coincide with a major student art exhibition within the university arena. The educational possibilities of each project are highlighted through an analysis of relationships and key practitioners involved in staging such events. Re-presenting new spaces for exchange the article reveals some generative opportunities to connect audiences and artworks within the sphere of museum practice.
