Has the Film Already Started – Tate Britain

Has the Film Already Started?

      I am not quite sure about this exhibition. Is it an exhibition or installation? Because I think this installation is also called Has the Film already Started. It is slightly confusing where it begins and where it ends because of its layout. Perhaps intentional or perhaps I was not paying enough attention. This installation is quite cool though.

      • Favourite Object/installation: This picture
      • Favourite label: N/A
      • Object/installation I wished I thought of: This one by Cerith Wyn Evans
      • Other things I noticed: You can’t missed the gigantic horrible chandelier called “Witness” If you want to see it have a look at eightlondonShe has taken lovely images of the exhibition
      • Overall rating: 2 stripes – It is confusing but has several interesting objects

Reading the post by EightLondon who seems to be very knowledgeable about fashion and seeing Grayson Perry’s exhibition confirms an idea I have had  for awhile..

What about making a correlation between exhibition/ museum object to the objects and design exist in our current/ mass market life?

That is our discussion for the next update …


Leaflets and friends – Grayson Perry Exhibition

Grayson Perry Exhibition Leaflet and Events Brochure

Inside of brochureThe Leaflet

  • Clean and clear
  • I like the clear 2 grid system – I love grids
  • The pink links in with Grayson Perry

The Event Brochure

  • I like that  it is also a poster of ‘Pilgrimage to the British Museum” drawing – double sidedprinting is always better to me.
  • It mentions the shopping, restaurant and online aspect of the exhibition
  • It features event for everyone including a Handling Session for visually impaired – Although I am not sure whether that part needs a bit more spacing between each line and also I would not use italics – as it is meant for the visually impaired, accessibility wise is not great.

I also saw banners, posters and listing on the Art Fund brochure all look very clean, clear and consistent. I think however the exhibition needs a free booklet memento, like other exhibitions I have been in other museums. Or perhaps have a book that is smaller than the £25 exhibition catalogue.

The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman exhibition

The exhibition displays Perry’s thoughts process of why and how he chose the objects and those that he created. I think although his thoughts are perhaps not really new even though in some part it sounded unreal, he managed to articulate things really clearly which makes the objects interesting. The exhibition also showed that perhaps actually, people around the world are not too dissimilar and throughout the time, they haven’t change that much.

  • Favourite Object: You Are Here Vase – It featured who visits the exhibition. Audience Segmentation on a Vase – How can you not like it? I’ll talk about it in another post
  • Favourite label: Magick – part of the quote said:’… Sometimes our very human desire for meaning can get in the way of having a good experience of the world…”
  • Object I wished I thought of: None
  • Other things I noticed: the main vase that has been used on all the publication – Rosetta Vase– looks like infographic on a vase *I think we should encourage having infographics on everything. (@.@) I think I can be friend with Alan Measles, as we are rather similar.
  • Overall rating: 3 Stripes– interesting enough but would not say that it is brilliant

Have you seen it? What do you think about it? What makes it good what makes it uninteresting?
