Installing ‘Frank Stella: The Kenneth Tyler Print Collection’

It’s been a big week here at the NGA as we’ve busily been installing Frank Stella: The Kenneth Tyler Print Collection.

Just like in the print workshop, it takes the hands of many experts behind the scenes to create the final product. The exhibition has been months in the making, and with the support of staff from all across the gallery – including exhibition designers, installers, conservators, framers and many many more – we are ready to unveil the exhibition tomorrow. For now, here’s a sneak peek behind the scenes:
