Treasures of the Royal Courts, V&A

DHA have recently completed the lighting for the beautiful Treasures of the Royal Courts exhibition at the V&A, subtitled Tudors, Stuarts and the Russian Tsars. With fabulous treasures loaned by the Kremlin, many of which have never been seen in the UK before, this amazing exhibition traces the trading history between England and Muscovy. It was designed by the in-house V&A 3D and graphic design teams.

Natural History Museum exhibition opens

DHA recently completed the lighting of Extinction: Not the End of the World at London’s Natural History Museum. The exhibition displays a fascinating range of specimens, models and graphics. Highlights include the skull of one of the last dinosaurs, and the head and antlers of an extinct Irish Elk (pictured).

More information about the exhibition can be found on the NHM’s website here

Light from the Middle East, V&A

DHA continued their relationship with the V&A and photography following their successful collaboration on the V&A’s new Photography Gallery 100 earlier this year. Designed and curated by the V&A’s excellent in-house team, the exhibition profiles the work of 30 contemporary photographers. The works all come from within the V&A and British Museums’ collections.

DHA worked to enhance the photographs with light, and create a welcoming gallery space, without detracting from the work. An audio slideshow (with Venetia Porter of the BM) of some of the most powerful images can be found on The Guardian website here
