A museum trip to London with exhibition plans ahead

After the second visit to Nuneaton, I’ve been gathering my ideas and discussing how I can turn my illustrations into interactives with Matt, the museum’s Outreach Officer – and also working out the layout of the exhibition with Jen, the museum’s Exhibitions Officer, it’s all coming together…here’s some of my early exhibition plans sketches – see if you can recognise if we end up with any of these ideas or not!

I have been working out some more detail to finalise our exhibition plans with the museum front of house team in my studio in London at Blackhorse Workshop. Together Marion, Heather, Rob, Matt and I worked out what questions visitors might ask them in the lead up to the exhibition.

We also talked about how I make my work, what materials I use and how I’m developing my practice for this project ‘Tales of the Tundra’ (a working title for now).

Before the team headed off to the British Museum (to explore more collections of Inuit artefacts) they also gave me some food for thought on what to blog about. They gave me extra ideas about what might interest the local people of Nuneaton and more ideas to follow up on more for the next time I visit. Thanks guys! So stay tuned, I may reveal more before I meet the museum team again in November…!
