audio-visual installation at world museum in Liverpool

Eight Months of Terracotta Warriors

Eight Months of Terracotta Warriors

The unique Terracotta Warriors exhibition at World Museum in Liverpool culminated last weekend, marking an incredible year for culture in Liverpool.

Like many other cultural events this year, the exhibition had an unprecedented run that was aided by seamless integration of AV technology provided by Adlib and Draw & Code.

Since opening its doors to visitors on 9 February 2018, the blockbuster exhibition was attended by over 600,000 visitors, a figure that far exceeded expectations of half a million, placing Liverpool once again on a worldwide stage.

When crunching down the numbers, National Museums Liverpool reports that the exhibition was visited by over 20,000 schoolchildren and 97,000 visitors on group tours, generating over £78m for the local economy.

Adlib’s head of video, Tom Edwards, who project managed the installation commented, “The incredible public reaction has confirmed the amazing depth of expertise and artistry that is available locally.”

The Team Behind Terracotta Warriors Audio-visual Installation

Adlib has specified, supplied, and installed all of the audio-visual equipment including complex projection systems and surround-sound audio installations alongside partners Draw & Code, who took care of the immersive content that was on display.

Director of Exhibitions for National Museums Liverpool, Fiona Philpott, who was part of the panel which approved Adlib’s participation in the exhibition said, “One of our greatest concerns was the failing of the technology, because the audio-visuals are such an important part of the visitor experience. What impressed us most, was the fact that Adlib could manage everything remotely. But also that they are just minutes away, so could guarantee to be here within half an hour if needed.”

“Adlib, Draw & Code, and World Museum have been working seamlessly together” explained Fiona, and such great collaboration was celebrated by Adlib hosting a private viewing of the gallery for its partners, suppliers, and guests alike.

And whilst an evening with Terracotta Warriors marked an ending of an incredible project, it also allowed for celebration of other Liverpool 2018 events that Adlib was part of.

Most notably, Red Bull Drift Shifters and The Giants, that together with the exhibition attracted over 2 million visitors from all over the world, showcasing Adlib’s capability in handling wide variety of large-scale projects that require utmost technical expertise in multiple disciplines.
