The “how” is often just as important as the “what” when it comes to putting up an art installation. Pieces may be secured with clamps instead of nails, other items may need to be used.

Five artists — Naoki Miyasaka, Kosuke Ikeda, Takuya Kumagai, Kazumichi Komatsu and Arata Mino — havecome together to highlight this subtle yet essential process, focusing on the particular and well-considered techniques that each of them use to design the perfect installation through exhibits such as Ikeda’s “Translated Painting (water) #4” and Komatsu’s “Group A (Bed Hard).”

It’s not often you get the chance to see a behind-the-scenes look at the process of presenting art, and you may even pick up some “tips” of your own.
