Museum Life: installing an exhibition part 2

Installing is my favorite part of the exhibition process. I’ve talked a bit about this before  with other exhibitions. One of my colleagues documented the install of the 2012 Student Fashion display through taking a photo every few minutes. It shows graduate fashion student, Anna Langdon and the exhibition team dressing a mannequin and organising her creative process display. I hope it gives you some idea of what Museum staff do in the final stages of putting an exhibition together.
