  • Considering viewpoints – evaluations: How does the display enhance the relationship between the artist and audience
  • applying ethical understandings to innovation and invention of theme, concept or subject matter when making their collection of visual artworks for display, and consider exhibitions that include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artworks
