“Mickey the True Original” is a large exhibition of Mickey Theme customized art works. The first space is in Yuz Museum that is renovated from an abandoned airplane factory for old Long Hua airport. It is famous of its large scale exhibition hall with extraordinary scale and height. The large roof with intense steel trusses, which was built for fixing aircraft and two giant columns in the center are the most significant space characters. These two giant columns become the important space dividing line in this exhibition space design. Before these, the space is enclosed. After these, the space is open.
The whole exhibition circulation is from the enclosure to the openness, also is a process from a private art space to a public art venue. The first part is a snake-like space, guiding the audience when they first enter the space. They go down with the designed passage to visit each art work. In order to avoid the tedious of the channel space, two visual corridors have been placed to connect between the waiting space and the exhibition area.
The second part is a maze full of boxes. The art works are like treasures hidden in different area, waiting for the audiences. Each area is designed for different art works. These different art spaces connect, overlay, veil, and hide each other, make audiences discover.
The third part is a large open park. After two previous more private “indoor space”, visitors come to an open public “outdoor space”. They rest and communicate in this open and free-walking large “Park”. The entrance of the large park is located between most significant giant columns, makes the gate with the rainbow arch above. It gives the symmetrical of the whole park. The three meter wide green promenade provides the atmosphere of the park as the backdrop. The activities area is placed in the center with the Mickey image. The art works are placed around it within the park, just as the statues and fountains in the traditional park.
Like the history of art exhibition from the royal collection to public art institution as museum and to further the more open and public space, this whole Mickey exhibition design is fitting in this irreversible process.
The last part of the exhibition is a cinema, in which a short art video from the early famous “steam boat” is played. Through this area, audiences are back to the beginning of the exhibition and finish the whole journey toward the exit.
