Confused about what to write for your exhibition review….
Start with your notes:
What was your over-all impression of the space?
How were the works arranged?
Where there any wall texts or other ‘framing’ devices – a catalogue essay, an artist book?
What struck you the most? What were you drawn to and why?
What would you do differently if you were curating this exhibition?
Write a detailed visual analysis of one work, or a comparative analysis of two works.
You can also: research the artist: who are they, what were their motivations, methods and aims? Look in the library and online.
