淺談策展 Organizing an Exhibition
Organizing an exhibition is a big task. First, the artist must decide whether to exhibit alone or with others. If it is a joint exhibition, all the contributors must agree on a theme and a title for their show. They must then find a suitable venue and organize a schedule.
After the initial planning stage, the artist or artists must finalize the budget. There are many costs to take into consideration, including renting the venue, buying materials and equipment, and promoting the event. If any of the contributing artists are well known, they may also expect to be paid.
初期規劃階段結束後，藝術家( 單人或多人) 必須確定最後的預算。因為有許多成本需納入考量，包括租用展場、購買材料設備以及宣傳展覽。如果參展藝術家聲名遠播，亦可能需要支付酬勞給他們。
In the past, exhibitions were promoted by word of mouth or through
printed materials such as posters and leaflets, but these days social media play an equally large part. It is also common to invite reporters from the local press to the opening of an art show.
