Craft Victoria: Call for Proposals

Deadline: 31 March 2011 (RECEIVE)

Call for Exhibition Proposals
Craft Victoria

Melbourne, Victoria
Exhibition Season: January-June 2012

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; demonstrate new ideas and techniques, whilst extending critical debates. Our program also provides opportunities for externally curated exhibitions. 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.

Program Structure
Craft Victoria is a not-for-profit organisation funded by state and federal governments. An advisory panel assesses proposals and normally consists of the Craft Victoria Artistic Director, Coordinating Curator, and Retail Manager, as well as independent artists, curators, academics and writers. Application deadlines are twice yearly (normally March and September). The final selection is made at the discretion of the Artistic Director. The gallery is a flexible space that can be configured into 3 individual exhibition spaces (50 square metres, 35 square metres and 10 square metres). 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. Craft Victoria encourages applicants to carefully consider the installation opportunities specific to each of the 3 gallery spaces.

Applicants are encouraged to discuss exhibition ideas and development with Craft Victoria’s Coordinating Curator and/or Artistic Director.
