Subject: Exhibiting photographs

Exhibiting photographs

From: Spreadbury Ann Ann <a.spreadbury>
Date: Tuesday, August 1, 2000
We are trying to update our policy for the loan and exhibition of
photographs. We have always recommended that originals are not
exhibited, but copies used instead. This is considered somewhat
inflexible, particularly in view of the number of high profile
exhibitions of original photographs that there are, and there is
increasing pressure on us to loan/exhibit original material, some of
it quite early. I would be interested in the position taken by other
institutions on this issue and in any established policies. I would
also be very grateful to hear of any recently published
authoritative information on the subject.
