AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER STUDIES
MODULAR DISPLAY UNITS
Discus was engaged by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) to design and deliver an outdoor art exhibition display solution.
The exhibition display solution needed to be a framework that could be easily dismantled, transportable and suitable for outdoor use.
The framework was needed to display Ngirramanujuwal, an exhibition celebrating the art and country of Jimmy Pike outside Government House, as well as future exhibitions of the AIATSIS.
WHAT WE DELIVERED
Discus engineered a modular framework design to meet the Institute’s exhibition requirements.
Made from 50mm SHS steel, we constructed an internal compartment frame that breaks down in a flatpack fashion into two faces and two sides.
With each unit weighted down with 250kg of sand, the display unit provides a sturdy solution built for outdoor elements.
All hardware and fixtures are hidden and the framework is cladded with ACM to create a seamless finish.
Four modular display units 2 x 2m in size were produced in total, and Discus printed the Ngirramanujuwal exhibition graphics to ACM and applied to each unit.
We designed, delivered and installed the modular display units at Government House for the Ngirramanujuwal exhibition within a tight timeframe.
The modular display units are not only a great high-end solution for displaying exhibition artwork, but they provide a convenient and re-usable resource for future exhibitions.
Being durable, dismantlable and transportable, AIATSIS are ecstatic with their new exhibition display units.
