12 Days to XXX+WHY Printmaking Exhibition 1 May-27 June 2010-Exhibition Design

Hello and welcome to my blog about Printmaking.

On the 27 March I started blogging about the count down to my involvement in the group printmaking exhibition XXX+WHY and what I needed to achieve in the 29 days until installation. With only 12 days to go I have enough work to fill my 18 running meters of wall space. I will be printing until Thursday afternoon which will give my prints enough time to dry before the installation on Monday 26 April.

As a group of artists, Jo Lankester, Donna Foley, Kelly Bianchi, and Doug Arana, we have worked individually to produce a group exhibition around the concept behind the title.

X as a symbol stands for the undefined or indescribable, and simultaneously for inimitability and mutability and as a identity. 

Each artist has explored different aspects of the symbol X using the medium of print in either/both traditional or contemporary printmaking processes.

Using Google Sketch Up it is possible to lay out the exhibition in advance to make sure you have enough artwork and which order the artworks will hang. This is a great tool that cuts down a lot of time during the installation process. It can give you a clear picture of the overall exhibition in advance and be a great way to communicate your exhibition design with the group, curator and installation staff at a gallery.

I advise discussing your installation requirement prior to the installation so the gallery staff can prepare and work through any technical difficulties in advance.
