What does it take to organise a touring exhibition?
Organising one exhibition can be complicated, and it should be no surprise that organising a touring exhibition is much more complicated. However, the rewards can be huge. Artists embarking on a touring solo exhibition can significantly enhance their national profile. Where individual gallery budgets are squeezed, different funding schemes become available to support tours. An artist making performances might see an opportunity to perform the work multiple times as an important way to justify the time spent developing the work.
We will look at touring exhibitions from the point of view curators, galleries and artists, to help you decide (long before any funding deadlines) if it is something you should consider, and what steps you can take to make it a success.
