Elmwood Projects create temporary exhibitions at the V&A

This year Elmwood Projects completed two temporary exhibitions at the Victoria & Albert Museum in the new 1,100 sq m Sainsbury Gallery (The Future Starts Here) and Gallery 40 (Fashioned from Nature). Here, Business Development Manager, Ryan Carlton, writes about the experience

Fashioned from Nature

The delivery of Elmwood Projects’ first ever project at the V&A in London – the temporary exhibition Fashioned from Nature – was all sewn up in time for the official opening. This is particularly pleasing given the tight timescale we were working to – but this is all part and parcel of the Temporary Exhibition world, where we are ecstatic to be making progress.

What the museum said: “This exhibition will present fashionable dress alongside natural history specimens, innovative new fabrics and dyeing processes, inviting visitors to think about the materials of fashion and the sources of their clothes.”

As the main Exhibition Fit Out Contractor, we are extremely proud to have been part of such a prestigious project.

The Future Starts Here

Following hot-on-the-heels of our Fashioned from Nature project at the V&A in London, Elmwood Projects have just completed our second project there – the quite magnificent (even if we do say so ourselves!) ‘The Future Starts Here’ exhibition. A fascinating project to work on, and undoubtedly for visitors to go and see.

What the museum said: “From smart appliances to satellites, artificial intelligence to internet culture, this exhibition brings together more than 100 objects as a landscape of possibilities for the near future.”

This was a £1m project delivered in just over five weeks, which underpins the fact that we are Museum Exhibition Fit Out Specialists capable of delivering the most ambitious Temporary Exhibitions.
