EXHIBITION, EXHIBITION is an exhibition that sets out to explore and reflect on the roles of perception and interpretation in the experience of viewing both works of art and art exhibitions, revising the ways in which we commonly view them. It brings together artworks characterized by their use of doubling and symmetry; works produced in series – which as a result explores issues of artistic progression and development, change and variation; works that are visually deceptive; work produced in different versions with some even produced by different artists, and presents them in a display format that itself will be premised on and follow these ideas. Taking place in the museum’s Manica Lunga building, for the exhibition the gallery space has been divided into two to form two separate galleries. In a further division, the two gallery spaces have been constructed with a wall in the centre so to comprise two rooms of equal size. Playing on the architecture of both gallery spaces, the specific selection of works and the requirements for their presentation results in the arrangement of works in one room to be partially mirrored in the other. The effect of this display, similar to a “spot the difference,” encourages the viewer to not only look closely at the works exhibited but also, collectively, to detect and almost reconcile the differences between the two rooms in each exhibition.
