Exhibition Proposals
Melbourne Victoria
January-June 2010

Craft Victoria welcomes applications for individuals and groups who wish to exhibit in our gallery. Applications are examined by an exhibition committee with representatives from each of the major media.

Craft Victoria promotes contemporary craft and design. Our exhibition program provides professional opportunities and support for emerging and established artists. We support projects that reflect innovative work, which demonstrates new ideas and techniques, while extending critical debates. Our program also provides opportunities for exhibitions that include historical
references relevant to contemporary practice. Craft Victoria fosters creativity and experimentation to a local, national and international audience.

Craft Victoria accepts exhibition proposals from local, interstate and overseas professionals, collectives and curators. Artists engaged in part-time or full-time study are eligible to apply providing the proposed exhibition is not the basis of a final assessment. Please note that applications for the period outlined above will be considered for that period only.
Successful applications will only be considered for the program outside these dates when impossible circumstances arise and at the discretion of Craft Victoria.

Commission on Sales
Exhibition work can be made available for sale. Craft Victoria shall deduct and retain a commission of 40% for exhibitors who are Craft Victoria members and 50% for exhibitors who are non-members on all sales of artwork. GST will be added to the sale amount.
