3… 2… 1… ‘syncretic’ opens this week!

It’s our last official day of installing “Syncretic” at 108|Contemporary. We’ve been debating details of spacing and location, solving last-minute problems with wobbly pedestals, smudged Plexiglas, and hydraulic lifts with minds of their own—and even taking some time out to talk to the press. Most importantly, we’re getting excited about the opening this Friday night!

Seeing an exhibition come together in the gallery is one of the most satisfying experiences a curator can have, so for my pre-show post, I thought I’d share the curator’s-eye-perspective on the installation process, as seen (with apologies) through my camera phone.
