NYFA Online Learning: Exhibitions: Polished and Professional Productions

About this Event

The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is pleased to announce its October online workshop, part of our Online Learning Initiative that provides professional development workshops to artists and creatives nationally and internationally through a webinar platform. The second Fall workshop is “Exhibitions: Polished and Professional Productions,” presented by Heidi Elbers, Director of Exhibitions at the New York Academy of Art. It will take place online on Tuesday, October 22, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM EST.

Workshop Description:

Are you looking to create an opportunity to show your work? Or maybe you have a great idea for an exhibition and don’t know where to start? This workshop is meant to help you develop a professional exhibition from start to finish, as well as discussing the universal documents and terms so it is also great for someone considering a shift towards an exhibition admin role. The focus will be on the more logistical side of exhibition planning but also keeping it creative so you feel in control to “choose your own adventure.” Elbers looks forward to helping you to produce a top-notch exhibition.

This workshop will cover:

  • Planning – theme, budget, timeline, space, artwork
  • Documents – promotional materials, insurance, loan agreements, bill of lading, condition reports
  • Production – art shipping, exhibition install, sales desk materials
  • Promotion – receptions and additional programming
  • Closing – exhibition de-install

Presenter: Heidi Elbers, Director of Exhibitions at the New York Academy of Art

For: Artists and art administrators that would like to learn how to produce a professional exhibition from start to finish.

Location: Anymeeting Webinar Platform
