Turner Prize 2014

Date: September 2014

Requirements

  • Exhibition works
  • Coordination of trade specialists
  • Interior Design and Decorating

The Tate Britain required a property maintenance partner to support the 30th Turner Prize exhibition. The world-renowned exhibition was opening to the public on 30th September therefore an exhibition build was needed, with less than two weeks notice. 

The project included the additional challenge of requiring audio-visual equipment for some artists’ installations.

MC Designers approach

  • Full internal demolition of the current exhibitions within the Upper 8 Galleries,
  • Co-ordination of all works with art handlers,
  • Constructing over seventy new Liquid Metal walls,
  • Painting and finishing all Galleries
  • Co-ordination of artists, electricians and audio-visual specialists for the mixed media installations
  • Specialist support for Ciara Phillips’ hanging installation

Results

The Tate Britain benefitted from a completed installation, ahead of schedule with all artists’ work displayed to meet their vision.
