‘I WENT TO THE ______ AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS ______’ is an exhibition of personal souvenirs and the narratives behind them.
The brief was simple; to put on an exhibition. This was a group project and we sourced souvenirs collected by others which had a personal story attached to them. We also created our own souvenirs to accompany this exhibition. This was a great opportunity to gain some experience in curation and presentation.
We did not have a client that we created this exhibition for but we did work closely in a client-like relationship with Suite Gallery, where we were exhibiting. This was a good experience in understanding that our work was not only representing ourselves but also the gallery. We made sure to keep in constant contact with the gallery and update them on our work, making sure they were comfortable and happy throughout the process.
