What happens at the museum during the exhibition change?

Following the closure of the exhibition Made in Paris. The Generation of Matisse, Lagar and Foujita, you are probably wondering what is going on behind the scenes!
Today, we reveal everything!

Following the closing of the museum, the first step is the dismantling. The art transport specialists, InteArt, arrive at the museum with the custom-made boxes and proceed to dismantle the pieces. Before being packed, the paintings pass under the expert eye of the general curator of the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza collection, Guillermo Cervera, who, with the help of a card, determines the condition of each of the works that have just spent a year in the exhibition room.

A reference label is then affixed on the back of the artworks, which will allow their participation in the Made in Paris. The Generation of Matisse, Lagar and Foujita  exhibition to be confirmed at a later date.

Finally, the moment of packing arrives. The works are carefully wrapped and placed in their respective crates, away from any external danger. In order not to subject them to too sudden a change in temperature, they are left to rest for several hours and, finally, we say goodbye to them.
Once the museum is empty, the room is subjected to various modifications and is personalised with the artistic discourse thought and designed for the next exhibition. The diferents operators (carpenters, painters, etc.) are given free rein to transform the space. The modules, which make up the itinerary, are moved, thus giving the room a new look! The walls of this new route are painted and the vinyls and the title of the exhibition are installed.

The exhibition room is starting to take shape.

We are now looking forward to the new artworks! The museography is one of the most important elements in the preparation of an exhibition. Following the floor plan to the letter, each of the paintings is placed and fixed to its assigned wall, together with the label containing the essential information. This fundamental stage, which finally reveals the whole artistic discourse prepared beforehand, is completed by the adjustment of the light points that are necessary to reveal the production of these exceptional artists in their best light!

The Museu Carmen Thyssen Andorra’s team awaits you from 10 February 2023 to present the new exhibition KHRÔMA. The Emotional Univers of Colour.
