How a piece is presented is a crucial part of the final product.

In the commercial art industry, it can often make or break a sale. When developing an exhibition, considering the space, the order and how the work is displayed is essential to the total experience. For shipping long distances, conservation and museum-display specialized steps in protection and documentation must be taken into account.

How it Looks: Trends and Techniques in Contemporary Framing, Hanging and Presentation is a condensed seminar covering contemporary styles and trends in framing, hanging, labeling and presentation of artwork. Although this seminar focuses mainly on 2-dimensional media it is applicable to a variety of contexts, emphasizing the importance of protecting artwork for longevity and archival purposes in a cost-effective and practical manner.
