The study was constructed as a conceptual design model that both tested and refined the ambition of the client. The study exposed and exceeded the paradox of revealing a hidden cannon of work only to enclose it again in another hermetic institution. The model describes strategies and spatial arrangements to make connections and juxtapositions, both actual and visual, that allow for a curation of the museum whereby the social, political and historic conditions that have marginalised women in art history can be disclosed.
