There is broad consensus that giving credit is positive and useful for reasons this presentation will explore, yet few guidelines for crediting the work behind exhibitions at museums — we often rely upon idiosyncratic decisions rather than a universal template. 

Here, we review the ways in which exhibitions are credited in peer institutions (opening wall texts, press and communications materials, etc) and offer a template moving forward.

We focus on the exhibition introduction wall, perhaps the most visible manifestation of credit for work done (for staff and visitors alike) which often sets the tone for the other ways/places in which credit is given.
