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.
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
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.
