Submitting Proposals

Proposal Guidelines

NAS Gallery is committed to showcasing a diversity of contemporary arts practice and accepts proposals from artists, arts organisations, and curators for exhibitions. Exhibitions in the Gallery and project spaces are generally programmed 12 – 18 months in advance to allow for project development and to comply with funding deadlines. The program is decided by the NAS Gallery Curator/Gallery Manager and NAS Director, assisted by an exhibition committee.
Selection is based on engagement with contemporary ideas, artistic and educational significance, research and profile of practitioners. While a high volume of submissions are received, each proposal is individually reviewed. Please allow eight weeks for a response.

  • Project description/curatorial rationale
    Up to 10 digital images (approx 1MB each)
    List of works with medium description and dimension
    Press coverage where applicable
