This morning we deinstalled “Pacific Pictures: Student Work from the Carleton College Seminar in the South Pacific“ and installed “LINE BY LINE: Student Drawing Exhibition”.

We had a great turnout for this exhibition; students were invited to submit up to three pieces which made for over 60 submissions for this show. After going through all of the submissions, it became clear early on in the process that we would hang one submission from each student due to space limitations.  The other option would have been to hang the show “salon style” where the walls would just be plastered with work from floor to ceiling.  I tend to like showing fewer works and giving those works enough breathing space on the wall to be fully appreciated as opposed to throwing everything up on the wall en masse.

Laying out all of the drawings with ID labels attached to each piece to figure out what specific works would be in the exhibition.

The other major challenge (and asset) of this exhibition was the enormous range of subject matter and drawing approaches that this show encompasses. We worked to group the pieces according to scale, subject, and overall visual look to create some sense of cohesion amongst so much diversity in the pieces.
