Frame Theory

Framing is often considered an accessory or as an afterthought, and my institutions look at it as a temporary presentation method for objects.  The truth is, framing can be an important part of long-range collection and exhibition planning.  Using the right materials, and building an overall stock framing protocol can extend the value of the process.  It can save resources like time and money involved in everything from planning to installation.  It also can help with the future care of the work.  In this episode, I cover everything from glazing to climate cases and how your decisions now can build a strong reputation for your institution in the future.
