Installation and De-Installation


Installation takes place two days before the exhibition opening (Monday and Tuesday).


CANTEEN provides basic tools, but any speciality hanging requirements are costs incurred by the artist.

De-installation takes place between 5pm and 9pm on the final Sunday of the exhibition. Artworks need to be collected at de-install as CANTEEN has no storage facility.
