Exhibition labels

From: Karen Potje <kpotje>
Date: Monday, December 16, 2002
For an upcoming exhibition it has been proposed that the exhibition
labels be silk-screened onto the inside of the lexan glazing of the
display case. Does anyone know if off-gassing from silk-screened
labels could harm the objects on display (all of them are black and
white gelatin silver photographs, a few with collaged elements
added)?  Would any particular products be more or less harmful?  If
silkscreen labels can be used inside vitrines, how far in advance
must they be applied?
