In 2012, five artists were invited to riffle through the drawers of Platform's archive. The artists were able to draw on more than twenty years of exhibition records from Melbourne's longest running Artist Run Space, with the intention of making a work for the Platform Archive Project. The principle medium of this series of exhibitions was the archive itself, with the artists simultaneously investigating Platform's archive and building upon it.
A series of five exhibitions took place over five months, between July and November, 2012. The project was curated by Emma Hamilton. Other artists included: Therese Keogh, Jessica Hood, Shannon Stanwell and Laura Carthew.
