Melbourne, Victoria
July-December 2010

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 Our program also provides opportunities for exhibitions that include historical references relevant to contemporary practice.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.

Program Structure
Craft Victoria is a not-for-profit organisation funded by state and federal governments. A panel, consisting of artists, curators, academics and writers, the Craft Victoria Artistic Director and Coordinating Curator assess exhibitions.

The gallery is a flexible space that can be configured into 3 individual exhibition spaces. You may request the entire gallery space or individual galleries, commensurate with the scale of the project. Craft Victoria will arrange the combination of exhibitions and final allocation of gallery space will be at the discretion of Craft Victoria
staff. Exhibitions are of approximately six weeks duration.

As of 2009 there is no fee to exhibit at Craft Victoria.

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

We encourage you to discuss your proposal beforehand with Craft Victoria staff.
Proposals for exhibitions in the second half of 2010 are now open with a closing date of 30 September 2009.
