Behind closed doors

Here's a quick update in pictures of what's been happening at the Gallery since our phased handover of the building began...

Our registration team moved in and the artworks started arriving...

And our photographers moved into their new digs (but there's still some unpacking to do!)... but best of all...
...There is art on the walls once more! This McCahon is the very first artwork to be installed in the developed Gallery spaces.

One down, approximately 800 to go! So now it's all hands on deck for our registrars, conservators, curators, technicians and designers as we prepare to welcome you into the Gallery on 3 September.

Edited to add: I've just realised the title for this blog post mirrors one my predecessor wrote almost exactly three years ago showing the empty Gallery spaces after it closed for development! And now we're moving back in... a serendipitous surprise.
