Submit an Exhibition Proposal

1708 Gallery invites US-based and international artists and curators to submit proposals for the 2018 and 2019 exhibition seasons. Applying students must have graduated before their proposed exhibition dates. 1708 Gallery strongly encourages proposals for new or developing projects and bodies of work. In addition to proposals for exhibitions in the 1708 Gallery space, public works and other non-gallery based projects will be considered.

Selected proposals will be given an exhibition period of approximately six weeks, a $1000 honorarium, and shipping, travel, installation and exhibition support.

1708 Gallery is committed to providing opportunity and space for experimentation, freedom and artistic growth, while promoting understanding and appreciation of contemporary art. We also support artists’ professional development through creation and facilitation of public or educational programming; interaction with collectors; and engagement with diverse audiences.

The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM EST on Monday, June 5, 2017.

Application Fee: $20

Please contact 1708 Gallery Coordinator Erin Willett with any questions at  ewillett@1708gallery.org or 804.643.1708
