The exhibition planning team have now made final decisions about which of the Max Gill items are going to be included in the exhibition and the collection owners have delivered the majority of the pieces that are to be included in the exhibition. This means that all of the conservation planning can now really start to take shape.
Most of the objects, as expected, have come to me rolled up and inside tubes. The collection owners have very carefully labelled the items which makes the organisation at my end a lot faster and easier. First thing for me to do is to ‘unveil’ them, document their condition, draw diagrams and take photographs of the pieces. I can’t wait to get started!
