This publication provides an introduction to key aspects of exhibition curation, from the early planning stages to the design and opening of the show.
The booklet provides assistance to those organising both small-scale and large exhibitions, as well as offering guidance on working with paintings, sculptures, and contemporary installations. Whether your exhibition is to be held at a large venue, with a team of curators, conservators, and technicians, or a smaller institution, the authors have outlined the possible eventualities and responsibilities associated with exhibition planning.
It also gives guidance on why and how to propose an exhibition, and offers general advice on planning and installation. It describes the roles of certain staff in galleries and museums, and their responsibilities when an exhibition is being put together. Case studies by academics who have worked on both large and small exhibitions also included, as well as an interview with an exhibition designer.
