One of the most satisfying moments in the exhibition process is when installation time arrives. This weekend, Atlantika Collective members converged on the Boyden Gallery at St. Mary's College of Maryland to finally put the Watershed Project into motion. After 15 months of conversation, collaboration, development, evolution, and planning it's an exciting and nerve-wracking moment to see all the work, the words, and the objects together. Will the projects hold together like we envisioned? Will all the work play nicely in the space? Are our ideas and intentions as clear in real space and time as they were in our heads? And maybe most importantly, can we turn it around in just a few days?
Check out the photos below, highlights from our installation process, including Atlantika members, gallery staff, and some sneak peeks of work in the show. We're pretty excited with the results - it really has a cohesion and interplay that comes from the consistent level of sharing and collaboration that got us to this point. We're worn out, but really looking forward to finally sharing it with other folks! Come see it if you can, and check back here - we'll be posting project galleries, the final work, installations and more.
