How to design a gallery in one easy lesson

9 August 2006 by Karen

Well, almost. This afternoon Ann Bukantas, who looks after fine art at the Walker, gave a fab behind the scenes talk on the recent redisplay of the modern and contemporary collections at the gallery. She delivered a lesson on curatorial decision making covering topics like what colour to paint the walls, how to make the gallery accessible to all visitors, how to pick the pieces and then how how to arrange the artworks around the room. The talk went down really well with the visitors present.

If you think that’s up your street you’ll be pleased to hear Ann is repeating the session on Monday 31 August at 1pm. Booking isn’t necessary.

Update: make that THURSDAY 31 August

Update: (04/09/06) an audio download of the talk is now available
