Curator’s Advent. Day 21. Art hang

Nothing is straight - shows a row of five framed prints
Nothing is straight

Simple, yet fiendish, the art hang requires a different set of skills to the mountingĀ of objects in showcases or for open display. What happens when:

  1. The ceiling isn’t straight
  2. The tops of the walls aren’t straight
  3. The floor slopes
  4. The frames aren’t straight

Throw out the spirit level and trust thine eyes.
