The On the Edgware Road exhibition included installations, films and performances, both at the Serpentine Gallery and at the Centre for Possible Studies, the project's home. The exhibition allowed visitors to experience the findings of the artists and local partners involved in the project and highlights future programmes that unfolded throughout the following year.

The Edgware Road Project links artists with people living and working in this London neighbourhood. The diversity of the local people and their interests are reflected by the varying practices and geographies of the artists invited to take up residency at the Centre for Possible Studies. Their responses have been political, reflexive and revealing. An accompanying publication marked this moment in the project's development with descriptions and propositions for the future, answering the question 'What is a possible study?'.
