Creating a first RC exposition - A Quickstart Guide

An RC exposition is an easy-to-create web format that can contain text and other media (image, pdf, video & audio). This allows artistic researchers to demonstrate their findings from their practice with a full range of media options, instead of being limited to text and image.


This guide is aimed at people "in a hurry", if you want to know more about the different formats and possibiltiies, please consult the guide.



Step 1:

Log in to the RC and click the [ create exposition ] button.

If you do not see this button, you will have to first request a (free!) upgrade to a full account.


Step 2:

Select the block editor, For more flexible layouts, you may want to choose graphical. However in this tutorial we will only use block, since it is the simplest way of creating a page.

Step 3:

Provide the:

  • title
  • abstract (can be a single sentence)
  • copyright (in most cases, this will be your own name, when you are the only author).

Step 4:

We are now in the editor, and your exposition currently consists of a single empty block. To create your first content, click the green ( + ) and select the type of media you want to add.


Alternatively, you can also drag additional tools from the toolbar into any block of your exposition.


Step 5:

You can add more rows, by hoovering over any row and clicking the black plus. For each row, you can choose between different divisions of columns, for example:

  • 2 columns, each 1/2 in width
  • 3 columns, each 1/3 in width
  • 2 columns, one being 1/3 the other being 2/3
  • etc..






You can move tools between blocks by dragging them with your mouse.


To control the size of images in your exposition, you should use different column layouts.



For applicants to the SAR conference (Trondheim, 2023): you can attach your exposition to your application form under the "RC Objects" tab. Type part of the name of the exposition and select it to publish it.



This concludes this brief intro into making an exposition!
