The final two career development workshops look at the different way you can get your work out and seen in public - through exhibiting, publishing in print, and online. The first in this "Getting Seen" series concentrates on exhibitions and galleries.
Exhibiting is a great way to get your work to an audience, but unfortunately everyone else thinks so too! Many photographers investigate the idea of exhibiting but retreat, baffled by the gallery system in the UK. This workshop is about demystifying the exhibiting process. It explores:
- How private and public galleries work in the UK and abroad
- Looking for places to exhibit, and negotiating for the use of the space
- Festivals, open submissions and group shows
- Organising yourself as an exhibiting photographer or artist
- Planning an exhibition, making the best use of any available space
- Designing shows, selecting, printing, sequencing and juxtaposing work
- Framing and hanging, openings, catalogues, publicity and security
- Alternative exhibition spaces, in the public realm and on urban screens
- Pricing prints, and deciding on whether and how to limit the edition of each print.
