Photorealism – Installing the exhibition

We’ve been extremely busy in the last couple of weeks – sadly we’ve had to say farewell to the Gruffalo but we’ve repainted the Gas Hall in blue and red, unpacked a lot of Photorealism paintings and started to hang them on the walls. The paintings are really astonishing to see up close and it’s exciting to see the exhibition start to take shape. It’s not finished yet but our technicians are hard at work getting everything ready to open this Saturday!
