Transcript

In this video, I will describe how I tackle the handling and staging. I am confident that this will help you in your staging process. I will guide you from my process to get from this to this. First prepare and take the material that you need to stay to work. Here's a non exhaustive list of material that you will need hooks and nails, hammer screwdriver, ladder scissors and the measuring tape would be the minimum you will have to type you will need acid free tape and your exhibit labels. Last but not least, you will need your artwork.

So when I arrive at the venue, I park as close as possible to the surface door then I do Make my prints in small batches from the car and bring them to the venue, preferably using a lift. Although one may not always be available, so I made sure that I am carrying my work securely. Once I get in the location, I unpacked my works. Since in the planning phase, I already defined the sequence of the art pieces, how we'll place each work in this predefined sequence on the flow. This already helped me in getting a good feeling if my sequence was well elaborated. My helpers will also be able to give me their opinion.

At this point, I do a first round around the whole location to see if I am happy with a disposition Next, I get more precise, I measure a mark using a pencil the exact location of each piece. This step involves placing the hanging hardware where required. This can be nails or gallery hanging systems. Before hanging each work, I cleaned the frames and glass. Once I'm done with hanging all the works, it is time for a second round of check to see if I am happy with the disposition. After this minor adjustments and alignments may be needed.

If there are no wall hanging opportunities, you may have to use stents. In this case, you may need to buy or run them from exhibition hire companies. Lastly, I measure and position the exhibit labels You can use a double sided adhesive tape for this. Often a venue won't allow you to stick anything on the wall. So I use acid free tape to stick the label at the back of the artwork. It is generally accepted that an exhibit label is put at the bottom right of the artwork.

Installing your works may take one to three hours depending on the complexity of your disposition. The first time I had 20 pieces, it took me three hours with the help of free friends. So do not underestimate this task. The good news is that practice makes perfect
