POD’s Modular Gallery Wall system has been an invaluable investment, allowing us to turn the foyer of our Performing Arts Centre into a versatile and adaptable gallery space with minimal effort and maximum impact. The walls offer the possibility to present professional quality exhibitions in a variety of spaces, allowing the exhibition designer the creativity to configure the space in any number of ways. Their simplicity and sophistication mean that art works presented are given the integrity and focus they merit. There is nothing else like them on the market… I know I looked.
"POD Modular Walls have provided MGA with economical and efficient options for our exhibition design and installation teams. The modular design and simplicity of fixing and securing the walls has allowed MGA to better manage our exhibitions installations. The high quality materials always provide reliable and seamless results. Service and delivery from POD are excellent."
"Hamilton Gallery thank POD Services for their invaluable contribution to our highly celebrated exhibition ‘Ah Xian: Axiom’. The quality and beauty of the cabinetry saw the exquisite porcelain and bronze busts by Ah Xian presented to their fullest advantage. This is largely due to the very discreet design of these cases which are subtle and not impeding focus on the artwork. The FRANK Showcase system was extremely easy to work with and took up very little space when stored away. Flawless craftsmanship was delivered together with extraordinary service."
"Bendigo Art Gallery recently worked with POD to commission bespoke mounts and plinths to sit within a range of their Frank cases. From start to finish it was an incredibly easy and stress-free process thanks to the professionalism, care and technical skill that was exhibited by the POD staff. The mounts were perfectly designed to cater for delicate and sensitive objects, and the cases are incredibly streamlined and invisible to allow the viewer to fully experience and focus on the objects. The project required a level of sensitivity due to the nature and history of the objects themselves, and the community members involved in liaising with the gallery to make recommendations for the care and display of the objects were incredibly pleased with the work and care shown by the POD team."
The frank showcase system is both highly versatile and affordable. The cost varies with size and materials – clear or coloured acrylic vitrine, high-clarity cast acrylic with/without UV-filtering etc. Aspects such as display furniture or lighting attract additional costs. We have a range of standard frank showcases available. Please contact Andrew for a price list. We can also provide you with a quote for custom showcases.
We are currently unable to offer this option, but this may be possible in the near future. Please contact us for a quote for purchase and we will do our best to meet your needs.
Of course. POD is available to meet your exhibition needs, large or small. There is no obligation to use our frank showcases when you hire us.
Certainly. POD has successfully provided multimedia integration as part of our routine exhibition display services for clients such as Melbourne Museum, Arts Centre Melbourne, National Sports Museum, Immigration Museum and Jewish Museum of Australia.
POD has been trusted with valuable artworks and heritage items for two decades. We have safely packed everything from travelling Pre-Columbian pottery to Rembrandt paintings. Large and small fragile items can be prepared for safe travel by our experienced staff.
We have decades of experience working with cultural collections, including the repatriation of indigenous items. We have been trusted to appropriately pack, handle and display objects that are culturally or politically sensitive or require a level of discretion.
We are highly experienced in the handling and packing of heritage objects such as these. We will work with any conservators and collection managers on-site to choose from a range of materials for long-term, safe storage. Archival products are used to maintain the integrity of the object. If you require assistance with a storage system to minimise damage and maximise access, we can also provide this service.
Definitely. POD staff can provide assistance on both long and short-term projects in country Victoria or interstate. We have worked on collections and exhibitions in Bendigo, Ballarat, Geelong, Shepparton, Hobart, Canberra, Brisbane and more.
