Tile displays:
I mount tile for presentations on foam core - the 1/2" variety doesn't
bend, even with heavy tile. I use epoxy glue to adhere the tile. I've
also mounted small sections (1' x 2') on 1/4" mason board which is fairly
light but will warp if the piece is too big. I usually rig the foam core
or mason board with another piece of equal size behind it, hinged at the
top to form a teepee arrangement (ribbon attached to the sides prevents it
from opening more than the desired amount). You could use a similar system
and hang it over poles in a booth. For that matter - you could just hang
the panels from sturdy poles with wire and use a light fabric behind.
Portable coat racks used for garments might even work. If you'd like to
send some slides of your work for consideration in my book, contact me
