The exhibition, which opens in west London next week, will present 100 images by international photographers including Mark Dion, Karl Grimes, Vid Ingelevics, Karen Knorr, Louise Lawler and Museum Clausum (Klaus Wehner), who also curated the show.
The aim of the exhibition is to highlight the art of curation, exploring how different cultural venues around the world present their pieces, and how the feel of the show is shaped by the reaction of its visitors.
As such, focus shifts from individual exhibits to the exhibition design and the space.
A highlight for us is this haunting image of partially covered Macaws by Richard Ross:
Ingelevics takes a rather different approach in his images, which turn the lens onto the forgotten spaces that connect various galleries within a museum:
The Museum Clausum series, Now and Then, uses a combination of monochrome images and full-colour photographs of collections at the Sir John Soane’s Museum:
These are presented alongside Clausum’s video installation Soane Time, which looks to intimate a ‘time-warped’ CCTV link to the Lincoln’s Inn Fields museum.
