Sneak Peek into Neo-Impressionism and the Dream of Realities

Guest Curator Cornelia Homburg and Associate Registrar Trish Waters go over the proposed layout of the exhibition.

Exhibition Curator Cornelia Homburg and Associate Registrar Trish Waters go over the proposed layout of the exhibition.

With less than two weeks before the opening of Neo-Impressionism and the Dream of Realities: Painting, Poetry, Music, the walls have been constructed and freshly painted. Now for the tricky part: finalizing the layout of the exhibition and making sure all of the artworks find their appropriate wall space in the thematic sections. Good thing we have a to-scale 3D model of our 3rd floor to aid us in placement and provide a great foreground for pensive photo-ops of our exhibitions team.
