Building a Faux Cabaret for the Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec Exhibition

Building a Faux Cabaret for the Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec Exhibition

Here’s a quick behind the scenes look at assembling a faux cabaret for the exhibition. Much of it was built and painted off-site and what you see here are the steps to assemble. It’s amazing how the most minimal of materials can give such a grand impression. We wanted to space to be dark and intimate so you’ll notice that we cover the windows with a dark blue vinyl to match an adjacent blue wall to mimic a sense of early evening at dusk. It was not entirely pleasant taking the vinyl off the east facing windows as much of the adhesive was left behind.  Nothing that a lil orange cleaner could solve, but still, not pleasant. The rest of the windows were covered in heavy drapery and the number of light cans were reduced and used only as spot lights that were screened down.  Finished cabaret images to come soon…
