Craft Victoria: Call for Exhibition Proposals

Deadline: October 29, 2012 (RECEIVE)

Call for Exhibition Proposals
Craft Victoria

Melbourne VIC
August – December 2013

Craft accepts exhibition proposals from local, interstate and overseas professionals, collectives and curators. Craft is particularly interested in hearing from independent curators with research interests across the craft and design disciplines. 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.

The aim of Craft’s artistic program is to present new developments in contemporary craft and design to the public, so as to excite and engage the wider community as well as encourage the exchange of ideas within the arts sector.

• The application process to exhibit at Craft (also known as Craft Victoria) will be open from Monday 1 October, closing on Monday 29 October 2012.
• Craft’s artistic program seeks both established and emerging practitioners across all craft disciplines. Craft presents craft within the context of visual art and design and encourages the use of craft mediums and techniques in various interpretations (including skills based craft).
• August 2013 will feature the annual Craft Cubed festival, in particular the 2013 festival exhibitions will feature Australian design. Exhibition applications relating to and interpreting crafted design practice are welcomed. (Please note this is a call for exhibitions in the Craft gallery space).
• Please note all applications must be accompanied by a meeting with the Gallery Curator at Craft. Applicants are to send a draft application to the curator before meeting and talk through the application and the installation with the Curator before the proposal deadline. Interstate or international applicants are invited to meet via phone or Skype.
