I’m receiving installation plans from the three thesis students in the upcoming exhibition, “Again and Again: Senior Thesis Exhibition“. Although there are many standards and methods for installing work into a gallery, I’ve found that every artwork presents its own set of specific challenges and needs. Therefore, it seems to make sense to think about installing an artwork as a matter of problem solving: there’s usually a certain look that an artist is trying to achieve. The three thesis students had to think about how to faciliate that look, as well as the materials and hardware that would be necessary to carry out their plans. Below is a diagram of Ran Tao’s plan for how to install her sculpture into the gallery.
