Behind the scenes

As a registrar, when I open a miscellaneous box marked 'freight' I expect to find paperwork relating to, well, freight...

Air way bills, consignment notes, perhaps even the odd document relating to customs and quarantine. So, you can imagine how surprised the registration team were when we found this lonely scrap of paper in our archives with a few notes about a damaged crate received from Adelaide, and this extraordinary piece of evidence attached. And I'm not talking about the Polaroid snaps documenting the shoddy crate. Dodging bullets – all in a days work at the Gallery.
