Call for Proposals – Artweek 2017 – There’s an artist in the office!

Artists Alliance is giving an artist (or artists) free reign over our office space for an exhibition/ project during Artweek. To do this we’re running an open call for proposals. What better way for us to provide support and opportunities for visual artists in Aotearoa, then handing over our conveniently located venue during the busiest art week of the year!

Dates to keep in mind;

Proposals due; 5pm, Friday 18th August.
Exhibition will be open from October 7th – 15th.
Artist event: 5.30pm Friday 13th October (could be an artist talk, workshop, performance, it’s up to you!)

You can download a floor-plan of the office space here (the space will be completely emptied for the artist(s) to use as they wish). Preference will be given to projects that have not been exhibited publicly before and that seem practically feasible within the space, which is situated in a building shared by other businesses and artists. This opportunity is open to multiple artists.

Your proposal must include the following in the form of a single PDF document;

  • A 500 word outline and 2 images (can be sketches) of your proposed exhibition and how it relates to your current work. (Aim to keep your written clear and specific).
  • 4 – 5 Examples of your previous work, (please provide online links to video or audio works).
  • 1 page Artist CV, (A list of any previous shows/ projects you’ve been involved with, education/ professional history, awards you’ve been a part of, or references to writing about your work).

Send your proposal by 5pm, Friday 18th August, to;
Daphne Simons at
Feel free to contact Daphne with any questions about this opportunity.
