HOW TO PUT ON AN EX­HI­BI­TION

01 DE­CIDE WHO’S RUN­NING THE SHOW

Blan­chard ex­hibits world­wide – here’s our ad­vice for fol­low­ing in her foot­steps... Will you host your own, or ap­proach an ex­ist­ing show? If it’s the lat­ter, en­sure it’s right for your work. Bud­get for print­ing, frames and de­liv­ery. Also, con­sider how ex­pe­ri­enced the or­gan­is­ers are. Will they take care of your work, pro­tect it against theft and dis­play it pro­fes­sion­ally? 02 UN­DER­STAND THE PROCESS Some or­gan­is­ers pre­fer sam­ples by email; oth­ers re­quest a phys­i­cal port­fo­lio; some are happy with a web link. Do they need a CV or price list? The or­gan­iser should also re­quest in­for­ma­tion for cap­tions and the event cat­a­logue. If they’re not ask­ing th­ese ques­tions, pro­ceed with cau­tion. 03 PRE­PARE THOR­OUGHLY Visit the venue, and think about how best to dis­play your work in the space, con­sid­er­ing its size, scale and for­mat. As a rule, the cen­tre point of a piece should be at eye-level for an av­er­age­height per­son. Don’t cut cor­ners to save money as you’ll end up re­gret­ting it. Pay for the best prints, mount­ing and fram­ing you can af­ford, and re­mem­ber to con­sider how you’ll trans­port work to the venue, too.
