Installing TASS, Part 4

Installing more than 250 artworks—not to mention text panels, labels, and graphic murals—is no small feat. It took a group of museum art handlers and department technicians just under three weeks to install the TASS exhibition. (Think about that the next time you freak out when you hang a picture or two in your apartment.) They worked with curators to space the artworks and determine the height at which they should all hang. (Fun fact: objects are generally hung according to a predetermined center height.) According to Aza Q. pictured above, one of the challenges of this exhibition was maintaining consistency and ensuring that all artworks were level—see pics for evidence.
