Documenting the Made in Bow exhibition

As with all exhibitions, it is very important for both the artists and the organisation to have a high quality record of the artwork and the way it was displayed in the space. Even with a touring exhibition which will be repeated, it will be formatted differently in each new venue and reconfigure visual connections between artworks.

Made in Bow is a one- off, and this exhibition including original Bow Porcelain wares alongside Bow artists’ works will not be seen again so is was essential to document it thoroughly.

In our case we were lucky enough to have artist/ photographer Felicity Hammond as one of the commissioned artists who kindly offered to photograph the installation of the exhibition in The Nunnery. Below are some of her shots.
