The exhibition at Berkshire Community College is up. I selected five pieces for
the Koussevitzky Art Gallery which is a narrow, sort of a cave like space
located next to the theater in the arts building. The plan below shows the
unusual space (sorry for the small fonts. The whole space is about 10 x 33 feet
Before I actually getting to the gallery, I tried laying out the pieces in my head
aided by the pictures and the plan supplied by the gallery. When I got there, I
was quite confident in hanging and I actually put the pieces right up where I
planed in my head. After the long day of driving and hanging the show, the
gallery director, Benigna Chilla, generously treated me with her cooking (sauted
shrimps and clams in creamy sauce with little accents with lemon and rosemary
served over rice. Yes, it was good.). I got to hear her talk about organizing
a show of Cuban artists among other intriguing stories. It was very cool evening.
Next day I went back to document the show and it was all too clear that the
installation was not working too well. I spent extra a few hours making sure that
the flow among the pieces are well coordinated. I wanted to have a solid feeling
of the show defined by the characters of the pieces speaking in harmony. After
spending all morning struggling, I finally got it right. It was one of the toughest
show to hang, but at the end, it turned out as one of my favorites.
Here are some of the images in smaller versions. The complete photo set with larger
photos will be added at the “PHOTOS” section of the main part of the site later.
I hope you enjoy.
