Laura will discuss the movable object which is working in a series, how to approach a project through preparation and foreseeing potential hurdles which can be overcome through her easy to follow steps. She will also discuss the presentation of said series and how different approaches can yield different outcomes, depending on where and how they are delivered and exhibited. Titling images, when is it best to title each one individually v’s one series title and keeping the images all ‘untitled’ as part of a bigger whole, amongst other considerations?

She will also give advice on the best ways to edition and price your work appropriately for your chosen area/market. Editioning principles are very specific and important to collectors including private and public clients and institutions.
