Wells Mackereth Architects has designed and remodelled the gallery for the BrassaÃ¯ and Goya exhibitions that open at the Hayward Gallery in London this week. It is the architect’s first venture into public exhibition design and its focus on colour as a key design element reflects the challenge of displaying essentially monochromatic works, according to a company statement. BrassaÃ¯’s nudes are presented on flesh-coloured panels, while in the Goya galleries the wall-panel colour-spectrum reflects the artist’s increasing sobriety and the intensity of his work.
