Installing Indiana

 

This film by Dale Schierholt offers a behind-the-scenes look at the process of assembling a major art exhibition - The Farnsworth Art Museum’s Robert Indiana and the Star of Hope. Interviews with the Farnsworth curatorial staff, combined with footage of the installation in progress, illustrate the logistical and the physical hurdles of mounting the exhibition. Whether its lifting Indiana’s EAT to the Farnsworth’s roof, placing the large outdoor sculptures on the lawn or hanging the paintings and prints inside the galleries, Installing Indiana offers a revealing look at this unique exhibit.
