With three gallery spaces to work across there was some carefully crafted combinations of artworks that were corralled into place. Today, the fantastic team at ExhibitONE have been charged with presenting the artworks in their best possible light. They've been measuring, lifting, moving, guiding and diligently working their installation skills to implement the THG's curatorial vision, all mapped out by Mardi's keen eye.This is the very first time a screw, nail or hook has been put into the fresh new walls and there's a palpable sense of excitement. It's almost as if the gallery itself is feeling the pride of its new inhabitants, pinned to its chest like badges of honour.
Accompanying the artworks themselves is a great publication which can be purchased at the gallery from the opening launch and afterward. This beautiful art book features researched backgrounds into the artworks and artists; premium quality images of the art; forwards from the likes of Glenn Barkley, Tony Ellwood, Cherie McNair and David Walsh; and insightful essays by Mardi and Marion. Cleverly designed and brilliantly bound, it's more than just a great memento of the show - it's a desirable object in its own right!
There's less than two weeks until launch weekend, and we really can't wait to see you there!
