The final week of the changeover process saw the three exhibition spaces completed and ready for the public to enjoy. Over the course of the week the install team at MTG have been busy installing the last of the large scale works in the exhibitions. The graphic design team had the task of producing exhibition labels and banners, which were installed into the spaces. A lighting specialist made sure the lights were perfected and each object was lit to conservation standards. Decorative gold leaf sheets were applied to an entire wall in one of the shows and visitor books were stationed in the galleries. This week was about the finishing touches, all in preparation for the opening day on Saturday 29 March.
Here is a sneak preview of the autumn suite of exhibitions and the new additions to the spaces this week. The exhibitions run until 24 August 2014, so make sure you come along and see them for yourself.
