Ideas in Sensuous Form: the International Symbolist Movement went on display in the Paper Vault at the Blanton Museum of Art in 2019. Curated by Claire Howard, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, the exhibition showcased the opulence and drama of the Symbolist Movement. Claire wanted to emphasize these qualities in the exhibition design, and decided on gold accents and velvet curtains.
I worked with Claire and Cassandra Smith, Head of Collections and Exhibitions, to plan, fabricate, and hang luxurious velvet curtains at the entrance to the exhibition.
Below is a sneak peak behind the scenes, as I was putting the curtains together. With a height of 14 feet, the curtains were a welcome challenge to fabricate and safely hang.
