John Martin: Apocalypse, Tate Britain

London
2012–2012
Client: Tate Britain
Project status: Completed

Exhibition design for Tate Britain's 'John Martin: Apocalypse'.

Our design for the exhibition examined the cultural setting of Martin's work, and the inherent theatricality he depicted. We designed a theatre setting for the Apocalypse triptych which made an urban room for the paintings, providing a place for people to sit and look at the paintings as well as view a 'son et lumiere' showing commissioned for the exhibition.
