Planning Process

The planning process for a single-channel video exhibition is determined by a range of variables, including the content, scale, venue, and context of the screening or exhibition. Whether one is mounting an exhibition of looped video works on screens in a gallery or presenting a compiled video program in a theatrical setting, it is important for curators and exhibitors to fully research and consider all of the steps and timelines involved. Single-channel video works are typically sourced from video art distributors or commercial galleries, a process that may require exhibition rental fees, loan or license agreements, and considerable time to fulfill requests. One must consider critical issues such as the technical specifications and requirements of the works involved, the specific conditions and design of the exhibition space or venue, the acquisition of the appropriate equipment and technical support, the details of the installation process, and the budget.

The following is a general outline of basic practical considerations and recommendations for the process of planning single-channel video exhibitions or screenings.
