I'm writing this post on the first day of the exhibition installation here in Taipei - the only reason I have time to write is that we can't actually begin to install until 6pm because of museum regulations, so it's going to be an all-nighter! Leon Tsai who is the local co curator and I had a walk through of the 1st floor space yesterday and ran into our first (and hopefully last) conflict with the Museum.
One of the artists had made an artwork resembling a vulva which would surround the doors of the elevator in the ground floor exhibition space ......the Museum people really didn't want that, so the compromise was found and we will feature the artwork around the elevator doors on the 3rd floor instead - the compromise is not the worst option so we're all relieved. It is always instructive to look at what is or is not acceptable to our host partners and to figure creative ways to overcome obstacles!
The Museum itself is undergoing external repairs which give it a 'wrapped like a Christo' look which I think I may prefer to the actual exterior.
