CURATION & EXHIBITION
Collection Curation and Exhibition Design: We curate, build and promote from concept to exhibition. We work across all platforms: Permanent and Temporary Exhibitions; Installations; Performances - Industrial and Environmental Design; Digital Curation and Design. Our signature is bold, contemporary and cutting edge!
In South Africa, we have produced worked for : NORVAL ART FOUNDATION, ZEITZ MOCAA, JAVETT ART CENTRE.
The team provides an independent and objective advisory service for private, commercial and corporate clients - from bespoke design and artefacts through to formal art; from temporary installations and pop-ups to permanent collections.
With each project the unique objectives, environmental and social needs of the client are analysed, and a proposal provides the basis for the project. Each project incorporates extensive interaction with the client and/or end-users throughout research, design, implementation and delivery. Post curation services include ongoing market valuation and sales.
Services also extend to studio tours and environmental explorations.
