Choosing a theme of title for your show may be one of the most difficult things to come up with. Let me be clear right now, having a theme will make an audience curious and ignite interest to know more about your art and you. This means that themes will attract an audience as well as the press. Locations who are keen about art and want to attract an audience will also request that you provide a theme for your exhibition. Indeed, by giving your show a title you're giving context to the viewer. The idea is to choose a unique title for the event that relates to your artwork and what is being presented.

During the selection of artwork for your show, you will have already started with the process of developing your theme. As we saw in the previous video, the clue is that the hot pieces and the sequence that are Presented tell a story to the visitors. Some may also call it a narrative. First, let's check the case of photographers for photograph is the purpose of photographic is often to document moments of life. Creating a theme as a photographer is therefore often related to the subject which is shown, for example, that can be documenting urban life or war fields, or portraits of strangers in a city or endangered species in Africa. So if you are a wildlife photographer, you may be presenting your work and photo series in Namibia.

And you may call your event 50 days in Namibia, or be more precise, 50 days 50 species in Namibia. Another way to tackle themes is by asking yourself some questions like What are you demonstrating through your art if you a painter. Maybe you want to show the power of colors, or the diversity of the material you use to create your art. Are you trying to express an idea when opinion or trying to send out a message? What is it? thinking in terms of questions, we'll start creating this park for coming up with your theme.

Also, many times, artists try to convey emotions through their art. Are you expressing a feeling and which one is it? Happiness, serenity, or sadness? One of the best ways to learn about titling your show is by visiting other exhibitions and getting inspired on how other artists are putting it together. One recommendation I have is to be creative and not be shy about titles. My process for coming up with a title is simple.

Plan time to brainstorm and do the best brainstorming, discuss ideas with family and friends and refine the title as required. Usually, there's a lot of good feeling for such a task and you will know when you have the right tackle. In order to be as original as possible, do an internet search and check if your title has already been taken by another artist. If you're not happy with a certain choice of words, look for synonyms so these words, you could even translate a title into another language to make it appealing and original.
