Published 11.05.16 at 15:19

Preparing for an exhibition is exciting and hard work. This webinar gives you a quick overview of what you should be thinking of to ensure it will be a success.
Nick Kaplony from Artquest will talk about preparations from pricing to promoting the show while Silvia Baumgart from Own-it will explain why it is important to ask others for permission before you show artworks, which incorporate third party material or how to ensure that others credit you correctly when they review the exhibition.

Topics covered include:

  • Principles of pricing your artwork
  • When you need to ask for permission if you used third party material in your own work prior to exhibiting
  •  How to commission a photographer to take photographs for publicity
  •  Hiring a space / commission fees for the gallery

You can find further resources on the issues raised on the Artquest website.
