Curator's Introduction

Curator's Introduction

I am delighted to introduce the new exhibition at Kings Hill.

The exhibition takes place over 8 of the multi tenanted commercial buildings in Kings hill and features artwork from based in the South of England.

I would like to give you an overview of how an exhibition is curated and delivered, hopefully this will be of interest.
To select an exhibition, I start researching a variety of artists and meet with them to see what work they might have available. After meeting with many artists I start thinking about which ones will work well together, sometimes the exhibitions have quite a tight/pronounced ‘theme’ (landscape, portrait, etc), others can bring together a variety of different artworks which resonate well with one another. One thing I try to do is incorporate different media into each exhibition and rotate them through the buildings so that a building showing paintings in one exhibition, may well have photographs, drawings or printmaking in another.

The exhibitions are made up of 8 smaller exhibitions, which work well in isolation or together.  By varying the types of work in each building, and displaying a map in each of the buildings which hosts an exhibition detailing the other exhibition spaces, we hope to create a trail which will encourage you to look at the art in the other buildings. Appreciation of art is subjective and different people like different types of art as they like different types of music and literature so during an exhibition you may find that you particularly connect with a piece in your own building or in another building which is why it can be very rewarding to see what is on display elsewhere.

There is a variety of high quality art on display in each exhibition from painting, printmaking and photography to very large sculptural work. Installation of the work takes place over a week and some of you may have seen the work being installed at various stages. Installation of the work can range from being very straightforward, hanging of pictures once the decisions have been made on where they will go, to more challenging installation of sculptures over the weekend.
