We are deep in the process of designing the exhibition for this January! But we didn't realize how much work really goes into an exhibition. Can you imagine all of the steps involved? Often exhibitions seem to appear overnight. As if the art work magically appear upon the white walls. Nope! Lots of work goes into designing an exhibition and curators are constantly considering all options to all possible components to an exhibition.
So far in our curatorial process we have been organizing, choosing, deciding, creating, designing, writing, discussing, debating, thinking, planning, *phew!*
(well you get the idea! here are a few examples!) ...
~ Selecting and narrowing down art work. Each curator has hand picked artwork for YOUR exhibit! Later on YOU can decide which piece from a pool of artwork will be added to the exhibit!
~ Designing Postcards and the Catalog for the exhibit
~ Creating Websites (this one!) We also have a "Fan Page" on Facebook! Become a fan here!
~ ResearchResearchResearch! Lots of research goes into planning an exhibition. We have been investigating artists and their artwork.
~ Monitoring the budget.
~ Designing and writing labels for the exhibit.
~ And many more projects and plans!
Tune in later for images of artwork and information on how YOU can help select artwork!
Question from the Curators:
What has been your favorite art exhibit and why?
