Review template

From my previous mini-review, I’ve started to list down some important things I may need to consider having in my review, or well, the things I will need to consider when discussing the gallery, the art work with in the gallery and the exhibition.

Introduction

A brief history on the exhibition

Why it’s being presented? what for?

What gallery(s) visiting

What it’s based on

Is there a main focus?

Any key details about items in gallery? History behind it?

What impression did the gallery give you?

Mention a thing about the gallery, how is it placed with in the gallery?

Describe the theme

Key details

History?

How is it represented?

Quotes on the placks

How is the theme presented/addressed?

How are the artworks made?

Features to consider: gallery labels, captions and titles; what objects are introduced and why(Make a list with detailed caption notes to draw from: dates, materials, designer are all important clues for context)?; how are displays?;what perspectives are represented or who is telling the story? what is the agenda. connect objects to the themes listed above.

  • Might try and link the items in with the history of the exhibition as well.
