- Be as clear as possible when discussing the set-up for your exhibition. Clarify if you are not sure of something. It is easier for a venue to explain something early rather than turning down an assumption at a later date.
- Try and get a visit or at least some wide pictures of the space before you come along for the installation. It helps to have a good idea of how your work will fit inside and will make your install far easier. It’s also a good chance to ask questions about how any aspect of the process will work.
- It’s great to see artists excited about their work throughout working with them, who might promote it online or invite people to come and see it.
- Keep in touch, but understand that for venues that are part-time galleries, it is hard to repeat book artists if there are only a few slots per year.
