Christie’s Private Sales sponsored Viral: Andy Warhol and the Image before the Internet Age, a pop-up exhibition held this June at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View as part of Andy Warhol at Christie’s, a multi-year, multi-platform partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. John Murray Productions, Inc. worked with Christie's to design, fabricate and install the exhibition walls and several display graphics within the museum's Hahn Auditorium. Forty reinforced 4' x 8' flats were fabricated in the shop to create the four 20' x 8' x 2' flat walls were built within the space and laid out like an X on the floor. The walls were then wrapped with bleached muslin to create the exhibition spaces for the Warhol art. Display lighting was installed to highlight the works, while information panels were placed in the corners of the room to give visitors a better understanding of the concept behind the exhibition.
Google held their 2013 Global Partner Summit at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View this Spring, and John Murray Productions, Inc. worked with MAS Events to design and fabricate the main stage set and 3 breakout rooms for the technology giant's annual event. The set for the general session included a seamless 70' wide flat wall and screen surround with custom light boxes and 3D logo as visual elements. The edge-lit boxes added dimension to the stage, with a modern look reminiscent of the De Stijl design movement. Three separate breakout rooms included flatwall screen surrounds branded with the partner summit logo, while custom fabricated directional sign posts and graphic walls tied in the look throughout the museum's second floor. The effect was contemporary, clean and modern, befitting of one of the world's most prestigious brands.
