Exhibition Proposals
Women's Studies Research Center (WSRC)

Brandeis University
Waltham, MA

The WSRC Arts Program welcomes submissions and proposals for art exhibitions and projects.

Shows are selected by the WSRC Exhibitions Committee, which is comprised of WSRC scholars. This process ensures that we fulfill our goals and our mission, and that we exhibit art of the highest caliber. It also ensures the feasibility and practicality of producing the show.

The committee meets two times a year — once in the fall and once in the spring — to review submissions and proposals and make selections for upcoming exhibitions. Please be aware that it may take several months to receive a final decision regarding your proposal.


We look for exhibitions that are:

•visually and artistically impressive and original
•related to women and gender
•activist or feminist in nature
•related to research being done by the scholars at the WSRC
and that
•ask important questions and provoke dialogue
•provide a context for education
•have not been presented locally in the recent past
