Touring Exhibition

Touring exhibition

 

We’ve been designing successful touring exhibition longer than most. Our touring exhibition system have been attracting enthusiastic audiences to museums and galleries within the UK and overseas.
Our touring exhibitions can tie in with educational themes, act as an attractor for an existing collection or as a spectacular visitor attraction in their own right.

 
Just to remind you, here are a few more of our amazing, pop culture themes built by our clients using our display system and materials curated from private collection:

INVASION, a collection of original, screen-used and replica movie props and costumes
CELEBRITY, personal belongings from the world of show-biz and other items touched by fame
ROBOT, awe-inspiring life-size robots, cyborgs and androids from TV and the movies.
All accessible, pop-culture themes, with mass appeal to family audiences.

All our touring exhibition include, museum labels and information panels, plinths and show cases, easily assembled in a format adaptable to fit any size and type of venue or public space, from museums to shopping malls – in a smaller venue the artefacts are simply closer together.

 

The benefits of our touring exhibition include:

*Vibrant and up-to-date, be prepared for a huge increase in entry fees (primary sales)
*Increase in secondary sales – food outlets, merchandise, other attractions and support learning activities can all be levered.
*Reduced costs – no development costs and super-low hassle free, low cost dry hire.
*Reduced marketing budgets – self-perpetuating exhibition themes attract lots of publicity and press interest at no cost.
*Achieve targets and funding criteria – In the past, venues have exceeded their yearly visitor targets in only a few weeks (see invasion links)
*Capture the imagination, generate and sustain interest in your existing static collections - Happy visitors mean, increased customer loyalty – visitor numbers will remain high long after our event.
*Enhanced visitor experience – Opportunities for interactive events, workshops, guest appearances and tested bolt-on event ideas.

Ever wondered how thrilling it would be to come face-to-face with a Martian? How about Alien? Well, visitors will find out when they attend the remarkable Invasion – touring exhibition, which brings together an army of famous – and infamous – aliens, monsters, props and costumes from the Sci-Fi blockbusters.The collection of fabulous movie props and costumes is guaranteed to scare – and thrill.On show is the creature from the massive hit movie Alien, which starred Sigourney Weaver, together with the huge iconic sleep chamber from that same movie, don’t worry the cat’s long gone. Not to be left out, Mutado from Babylon 5 is also a favourite of the exhibition – he’s not pretty.

Full size Martians from Mars Attacks and the alien host from the X-files movie aside, there are some cute aliens too. Jim Henson’s creation: Bobut will be there from the American Sci-Fi fantasy adventure Aliens In The Family. In the costume department there are exhibits from Planet of the Apes, Star Trek Enterprise, Andromeda, Stargate Atlantas, Red Dwarf and the Chronicals of Riddick.

Star attraction has to be Mat Le Blanc’s hero spacesuit and the massive transporter spaceship model from the spectacular opening scene of the Lost In Space movie.

This exhibition has created a huge wave of interest wherever it’s been. Thousands have flocked to see the costumes and props from sci-fi productions. We expect people to be equally enthralled and perhaps a little frightened!

Warrnambool, Victoria a rather lovely review.
A monster hit at Torquay Museum, breaking all visitor records – up to 1000 visitors per day! “Not only has INVASION been a spectacular stand-alone success in attracting visitors,” says Carl Smith of Torquay Museum, “but it has also increased interest in our static collections and improved our customer loyalty – a vital aspect of the long-term health of the museum.”

Torquay Museum’s visitor numbers were launched into orbit when it exceeded its yearly visitor target in just ten weeks. Thanks to INVASION, nineteen thousand visitors came through the museum which expected to see 5,000 in the whole of year. 

On the busiest day, over 1,000 visitors came to see the display of creatures, props and costumes from landmark and popular science fiction films and television series such as Alien, Lost in Space, Mars Attacks, Predator, Robocop, Star Wars, Terminator and The X-Files. Previously, the highest number of visitors the museum attracted in a day was 300.

“INVASION has its roots in a project commissioned for the Zenith Project some years ago” explains Don Jack, Creative Director of Ideas, the design consultancy that provided the exhibition. “We were asked to create a vision for a £20m visitor attraction, indoor ski centre and water park for Scarborough’s North Bay. One of our proposals: UFOLand, evolved into INVASION, an exhibition which has since appeared in many museums and tourist attractions over the years.” 

“Because Ideas is a full service creative agency,” he continues, “we can advise on and provide related merchandising, vital in maximising the profitability of any exhibition. We have enormous experience in developing interactive and educational events, workshops, guest appearances and bolt-on event ideas which we know work, because our clients have used them in the past to great effect .

Robots come in all shapes and sizes. Some are friendly, others helpful, and a few are simply scary. And an exciting exhibition showcases robots in all their guises, with a collection of robots, cyborgs and androids on display.
It’s not often that members of the public get the opportunity to meet some of the metal stars of the big screen face to face. But visitors will get up close and personal with famous names such as Robby the Robot and the Numan robot from Shawcraft.Film fans will also recognise the B9 robot from Lost in Space, and the cyborg Robo Cop.Although these were all “good guys” , no exhibition would be complete without the darker side, which is represented by robots such as the ABC robot from Judge Dredd. Firm favourites R2D2 and a Battle Droid will be on display along with such non-human stars as Sonny, who starred alongside Will Smith in the film I, Robot.
And do you remember when Tomorrow’s World promised us that we would have household robots? Well, where are they? In answer, you can see the R.A.D. robots 1.0 and 4.0 – personal robots designed to serve drinks and eavesdrop on other peoples conversations.
With so much on show, visitors will be spoiled for choice. And around every corner lurks another metallic star – from The Terminator to Scooter. They’re all there. This new exhibition is expected to create a huge wave of interest. We expect people to be enthralled… and perhaps a little frightened! Few have faced up to an Alien cyborg and lived to tell the tale! Everything you need for a spectacular, successful, engaging and educational temporary exhibition. Works within any size of venue.

REVIEW

Art Factory – Robot (21 July – 28 August) attracted over 5000 visitors to the turnpike Gallery this summer, making it one of the most popular exhibitions during the last decade.

The majority of visitors to the gallery were from Leigh, Hindley, Tyldesley and Atherton.

Robot attracted a wide variety of people including teenagers and toddlers, young families and older adults, disabled people and community groups.
Selected comments included: “Today was really good and different. thank you” “I loved making my own robot.” “It’s totally awesome!” “Fabulous! We’re visiting from the USA and we loved the exhibition and robot craft.” “Fabulous idea for the kids.”

The flyers are distributed, posters up, advertising and PR are all in the bag. Initiating home/venue interaction, the web site went live this morning. 

Inclusive, diverse, educational and inspirational touring exhibition and a great learning resource platform, it has been hailed as as one of the most compelling touring exhibitions in the UK.

 From family tours to primary and secondary “experience” school trips, treasure hunts, design and writing workshops, everything was in place. 

Alien yet familiar, the edges of science-fiction and science-fact are blurred. Visitors are at the same time both skeptical and predisposed to persuasion. An array of beautifully presented artifacts, some fashioned from metals, crystal, clay? Perhaps. Some are biogenetic in nature, some contained in cryogenic chambers monitored for signs of degeneration. Each seem stranger and more thought provoking than the previous.  

The host city’s contribution to the culture, science, creative industries are also cross-referenced offering potential for links with external sponsor’s. Local explorers, past and present will be identified and will form the backbone of ongoing PR, helping to sustain ongoing press interest. Somehow, as we discover and evaluate creatures and artifacts from this alternative realm we come to embrace the true nature of our own existence – the exhibition effortlessly ties in with the venue’s existing collections.

Extract from exhibition labels:
Genetic robots adapt, redesign and reproduce themselves evolving into physical forms of complex algorithms. 
The cyberceptualists have long since changed their view of the beauty aesthetic. Pain-free reversible surgical procedures and robotic augmentation heralded mass manipulation and experiment in the quest for the unique or the perfect. The concept of beauty has long since been shunned. Business and industry also capitalise on these biological and technological leaps offering huge financial incentives to intellectually advanced individuals prepared to combine these characteristics, hoping to afford them commercial advantage. It was the time of the great leveller, there is nothing to want nor regret.
