Do you know the difference between museum lighting and Gallery lighting?



he Particularity Of Gallery Lighting

The lighting of the gallery is different from that of museums. First of all, the lighting conditions of the exhibition are different. The types of exhibits are mainly modern, and the exhibits of comprehensive materials are also richer. Compared with museums with most cultural relics, the lighting and methods There are obvious differences, and most of them use spacious and bright methods. Besides, the use of natural light and imitation of natural lighting design forms are common. Lighting design pays more attention to the color reproduction and realistic expression of the exhibits.Secondly, there are obvious age differences in the audience of museum visitors. Some audiences who have a relatively high level of artistic appreciation have a higher probability of visiting the museum. Their aesthetic requirements are more prominent, which is reflected in visual comfort. The sense of experience is stronger, and it has a higher aesthetic tendency than the museum audience.图片无替代文字图片无替代文字

Besides, in terms of the spatial scale of the exhibition hall, the gallery is also significantly different from the traditional museum. Especially in the display of contemporary art, large-scale and large-scale works are increasingly appearing. It will cater to the open and bright large space and a large-scale sense of place. It is different from museums with historical and cultural relics and document exhibitions in the form of exhibition space. Museums that focus on the protection of exhibits form a clear contrast in lighting performance...


The lighting design will also be very different. The lighting lamp products selected for high space will have significantly higher technical requirements for the physical indicators of the lamps than the museum's lighting products. Besides, the color reproduction of exhibits is also higher than that of museums. In these special forms, we will reasonably guide the evaluation direction in the evaluation standards for lighting in the gallery.


Gallery is also different from museums in terms of lighting management. Most art galleries in China have no basic display or even fixed collections. The main work is mainly temporary exhibitions and external exchange exhibitions. The exhibition period is relatively short, often only a few days. Due to the frequent replacement of exhibits, Quality requirements will also increase. Also, in terms of the use and maintenance of light sources and lighting products, an increase in the damage rate will also increase the quality requirements of lighting sources and lamps in the gallery, and enhance the stability and safety of lighting equipment.

In addition, the museum's maintenance of lamps and lanterns is also stronger than the needs of the museum. In the use of lighting equipment, to meet the flexible needs of the museum's later management, an intelligent control system that can be adjusted and used for multiple purposes is the best. Of course, for the museum managers, the workload of the post-maintenance business of lighting products is also heavier than that of museums. More funds will also be invested in the equipment's later fund management. The above factors are significantly higher than the museum's lighting quality requirements. The current survey data of our research shows that the museum also responds quickly to the use of new light source LEDs, and is significantly faster than museums in eliminating traditional light sources.图片无替代文字

With the maturity of LED lighting technology, changes have taken place in the application of light sources. Many traditional light sources have begun to be discontinued and are being phased out. Especially like traditional museum halogen light sources and fluorescent lamps, the scope of application is shrinking year by year. Various practical reasons have led the museum Difficulties in the daily maintenance of lighting products and equipment.

At present, LED lighting technology is still in the perfect stage, and has obvious advantages in energy-saving and intelligence. It also has outstanding protection of exhibits. Ultraviolet and infrared content is extremely low, which also has a good protection effect on exhibits. Therefore, it is conducive to its promotion and popularization in museums and art galleries. Many new and remodeled places have selected LED as the mainstream product.图片无替代文字
