This week should be a chance to test a final iteration of your work and receive feedback.
Please put your work up the first thing when you arrive – don’t wait for us to give you a briefing!
Get in and put up your work – this will give us a chance to talk in depth with you about your work. While Mat and Jo will be available by appointment over the next couple of weeks – we won’t be immediately on hand. This is your final week to get some astute feedback, to discuss your work with your peers, and think through the final details.
Remember you are installing a finished work both here on IC for marking and on main campus for the exhibition. This will means organising a professional looking and reading didactic panel (presented on foam core) and ensuring all aspect of your work are ‘tucked away’ and well presented. Plinths will need organising and painting, works will need to be mounted (with a level and a ruler) in ways that don’t peel off easily.. etc etc. Make sure you have a plan for transporting your work to main campus and you have a good idea of where it will be going and the installation challenges that may present.
Jo and the Curatorial team will get the necessary information from your works this week in order to allocate space and equipment both for the assessment and for the grad show. So please have your work up.
If we haven’t seen your work installed in the gallery – it is absolutely essential that it is installed this week. We need to provide feedback now. Neither of us like marking day surprises and projects that have had no benefit of feedback and development are rarely effectively executed.
So not to put too finer a point on it – but this is your last chance…. get to it..
A Few Things…
