|The gallery layout with art for the|
Love Letter show in place, a total
of 48 paintings.
Now, if I had a show at the Tate Modern this would be a good idea! I'm not going quite that far for the Community Creative Center show, but I did do a paper version to see everything in place. While not necessary, I know how exhausting the installation of a show can be, and I only have two days to do the entire thing. I want to have most decisions made in advance.
|Drawing a wall template for arranging|
It makes even more sense to do a template when you have a random arrangement. You can play with the elements until you have the layout that works best, then just trace the shapes and mark the holes. I have the artwork and templates numbered so I know what goes where. It takes less than 15 minutes to hang a group of 25 little pieces, and they end up exactly where I want them. This makes installing a show much more fun!
