Call for exhibition proposals 2021

The call for proposals is now open for the 2021 exhibition program at the Counihan Gallery In Brunswick.

Artists and curators are invited to submit proposals for projects that can be developed and achieved in the next year.

As an Art+Climate=Change 2021 venue partner, the Gallery welcomes proposals with strong links to climate change activism and associated social or political issues that might be considered as a festival exhibition in the month of May, 2021. The gallery invites proposals from professional artists from all cultural backgrounds that meet the selection criteria and align with the gallery’s objectives.

Applications can be submitted at any time during the proposals period but will only be assessed after the *new* closing date of Friday 31 July 2020, 5 pm. 

Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee inclusion in the annual program.

This year, applications are to be submitted online. Download an application pack to find out more.

Applying for exhibitions can be a tricky business and we want to give you the best chance of success. Find out what the Counihan Gallery looks for in a proposal and hear the answers to some FAQs.

View Gallery 1 & 2 in the Counihan Virtual Gallery

When working on a proposal, it's not always easy to remember the layout of our gallery from home or the studio. Now you can explore Gallery 1 and 2 in 3D. You can even add your works to the space to see how they will look using online modeling platform SketchUp. Download the SketchUp file and create a SketchUp free account to get started.
