Curating an exhibition

When curating an exhibition,  it’s important to consider the whole aspect of the exhibition prior to arriving at the venue to put the work up


  • The appearance, theme and aesthetic of the exhibition
  • The minimum size of the wall/floor area you need for the exhibition
  • How the exhibit will be mounted. What are the materials being used, and are there any health and safety factors to be considered?

Installing the artwork

  • You will need to install or oversee the installation
  • The arrangement of a show is vital to its success
  • Aim to lead the viewer in a natural order around the pieces
  • Create unusual juxtapositions in the arrangement
  • Seek a second opinion
  • Allow yourself plenty of time to install work correctly
  • Be prepared
