Worth the wait

Exhibition

The balcony has become the favourite spot for Gallery managers to marvel at the queue for admission to the Ron Mueck show.

So here is the queue to see Ron Mueck on Wednesday 19 January at about 11 am.

Rest assured: the wait is worth it and the queue moves quickly, while also acting as a throttle so that the exhibition spaces themselves do not become crowded.

And here's a photograph from 1980, of people queuing to see the Thyssen-Bornemisza exhibition at the Robert McDougall Art Gallery. A mere 34,199 people attended.
