Traveling Exhibitions

Host an Aperture Traveling Exhibition
Aperture offers a diverse selection of photography exhibitions to museums and institutions throughout the world. They range in size from 25 to 300 images and require from 150 to 500 feet of running wall space. The showing period is 8 weeks, but we will make every effort to accommodate your needs.

“Exhibit in a Box”
Aperture exhibitions come crated, labeled, and framed, with accompanying captions and text panels that need to be produced by the venue. Advance materials include a press release; information about sponsors, if applicable; exhibition checklist; case list; and condition report forms. Almost all of our exhibitions have a fully produced Aperture book which accompanies them, and these are available for exhibitors to sell in retail venues. Many are available in foreign-language editions. Often our photographers are able to attend openings or educational programs organized by host institutions, and we are happy to facilitate those arrangements.

Exhibitor’s responsibilities
The participating venue is responsible for the exhibition fee, prorated shipping, and insurance coverage while the work is in the institution. We require a certificate of insurance and a facilities report from each participating venue. Our contract details arrangements with exhibitors regarding security, environmental controls, and other aspects of hosting an exhibition according to standard museum practices.
