Sculpture Gallery 111
Victoria & Albert Musuem, London
Gallery 111 is part of the original scheme of halls designed to house the Museum’s architectural plaster-casts. The brief was two-fold : to restore the Gallery to its original appearance & function and to insert a new permanent collection of sculptures sensitively within the Gallery. By incorporating a system of all-glass cabinets, drawer units & seating, the exhibition manages to bring the Museum’s diverse collection of sculptures to prominence with informative displays on the interpretation and techniques of sculpture. The original features and spatial qualities of the Gallery with its new collection of artefacts are visually enhanced by a discreet lighting track at high level.
