The preparations for Format Festival (http://www.formatfestival.com/) are gearing up to top speed in the coming weeks. The building of the space for the lead exhibition "Ahead still lies our future" @Quad has started.
I am beyond excited to see things take shape, not in the least because Peter Bonnell, the senior curator, keeps sending me new 3D renderings of the space. I asked him if we could have Mr. Cardboard man in the exhibition as well, since he looks so good on paper.He could be my date at the opening, and accompany me on the guided tour that I have pledged to give. Fancy that!
All jokes aside, I have nothing but respect for the team members of Louise Mazmanian, who have shown to be real anchors in the storm of work that we have kicked up. Respect also for the participants, who have been angels of patience in the avalanche of emails that have been exchanged. It's a bit early to congratulate each other, but I am damned proud to be part of it so far. (Remind me of this again at the opening, on March 23rd, when I am not so tired and exhilarated at the same time.)
