Hanging the Exhibition Day 1
Hanging the exhibition was thoroughly planned prior to the setup and was estimated to take two days to hang and construct the temporary wall. By using Google SketchUp, I knew the work would fit perfectly in the space and had the exact measurements for the hang. Before I was given access to the exhibition space, I gathered all the work two days in advance so that it was all ready to be hanged. Also, the team that was helping to construct the exhibition, was informed of the itinerary of the hang and everything each person needed to do. However, one problem that delayed the whole process by over six hours was that the artist who used the space beforehand never cleared up his work for the next exhibition to be hung. This involved the team, painting over and filling in his work on the walls.
Despite this, whilst half the team were cleaning up the previous artist’s work,we also began to collect the materials needed to construct the temporary wall, around the same time the blurb was sent off to be printed. Once the space was cleaned of the previous work and all the materials for the wall were collected, we began to systematically construct the wall. This included one person cutting, one drilling, one sanding and the other sawing. By the end of day one, the first side of the temporary wall had been complete and was slightly revise with added to supports to add extra strength to the structure.
