In such an environment, the selection of work would be extremely important and it would be difficult to show too much.
There also budgetary concerns when it comes to the presentation. White paint isn’t that expensive, but we need the permission to use it, walls to put it on, and people to actually paint the walls.
Would such a minimalist approach prevent us from using tables? Would we be unable to show sketchbooks? If the overall theme is minimalism, maybe we don’t need to go 100% minimalist. This is about showing a broad variety of work from a broad variety of students after all.
