Ship to Shore exhibition at Sea City Museum

seacity_logoLast week, we spent a few days lighting the new temporary exhibition in the Pavilion at Southampton’s Sea City Museum: Ship to Shore. This exhibition explores the many different ways that artists have engaged with seas & oceans, using a variety of media and techniques. Works from (among others) Tacita Dean, Tracy Emin, Susan Hiller, Steffi Klenz, Richard Long,  and Yinka Shonibare MBE are exhibited alongside historic paintings including La Vague by Gustav Courbet. The exhibition is unusual in that it is actually spread over two sites, with the other part being shown at the John Hansard Gallery, a short bus ride away.

The exhibition represents our continuing relationship with Sea City, as DHA originally provided the architectural and exhibition lighting for the refurbished building that now houses the permanent Titanic exhibition, as well as changing exhibitions on Southampton’s relationship with the sea.

The Benjamin Franklin Museum is the subject of an article on the Museum + Heritage website this month. Not only is the unique nature of the man discussed, giving rise to a fascinating exhibition about life in Revolutionary America, but also the level of Anglo-American co-operation required to make the project come to fruition. We worked with Casson Mann on this project, and the American curators, Remer & Talbott.
