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!

Photorealism – Exhibition Preparations

It’s just over a month until Photorealism: 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting opens in the Gas Hall and we’re busy preparing how it’s all going to look using our model. It’s a lot smaller than the real Gas Hall but still big enough that we have to keep it in two halves! Here’s a sneak preview of how it might all look and some of the fantastic paintings that’ll be in the show…
