Fitzwilliam Museum, UK

Exhibition projects require consistent attention to detail.

Michael Grubb Studio has worked on various ‘temporary’ exhibition projects for The Fitzwilliam Museum – as art and antiquities museum of the University of Cambridge. They include: Madonnas & Miracles, Death on the Nile, Colour and their very own Bicentenary Exhibition.

WHAT WE DID

Conservation requirements varied considerably with lighting levels ranging from 50-200 Lux. The size of the artefacts on display also provided many challenges that had to be addressed whilst on site.

It was important to establish a clear hierarchy that supported the content on display and the narrative of the exhibition.

With a limited time slot to complete each installation it was important to work efficiently. This meant gaining the trust of the museum and work in a collaborative manor with curators to deliver impact, drama and a real sense of theatre.
