On Tuesday I was at the NGA event at the Q club. I could review the work, which was all very good, especially this work by Chris Hodson (who also has a blog about his work and is a member of B-VAC), but instead I’ll talk a little about the venue itself.
It sucks as a gallery/viewing space.
Hmm, maybe that might’ve been a big harsh, so I’ll rephrase: The building wasn’t used to its full potential and for me it distracted me from the artwork on show. Most of the time I was trying to find my way around and many of the rooms were off limits. This wouldn’t have been a problem, except that the many signs were confusing. I think the venue would’ve worked a lot better if all of the rooms were used, so that the exploration of the building actually had more of a reward. Instead we were given a map. I hate maps, mostly because I can’t follow them.
