The Castlefield Gallery Associates Members Exhibition supports members of Castlefield Gallery Associates to realise an ambitious, exciting and timely project. The successful applicant receives a budget of £2,000 as well as curatorial and technical support to produce an exhibition as part of Castlefield Gallery’s exhibition programme. The next Members Exhibition (Spring 2021) will be selected by Castlefield Gallery Curator Matthew Pendergast and our guest selector Mariama Attah, curator at Liverpool’s Open Eye Gallery.
The Spring 2020 Members Exhibition, selected by Ryan Gander and Matthew Pendergast, is The Naming Of Things – a group exhibition curated by Bryony Dawson; due to the Covid-19 outbreak, this has been postponed until 2021.
Information about Castlefield Gallery’s previous Launch Pad programme, and related exhibitions can be found in the Launch Pad archive.
Members of Castlefield Gallery Associates can submit a proposal for a solo exhibition, a curated group show or a collective project. In the case of group exhibitions or projects, at least one participating artist or writer or the curator must be a Castlefield Gallery Associate. (nb. proposals should be for a fully formed exhibition; Castlefield Gallery will not curate a group exhibition from individual proposals)
The successful applicants may want to do further fundraising beyond the £2,000 budget provided by the gallery, and applicants can submit an outline of what a scaled up version of the project would look like should their proposal be selected and subsequent further fundraising be successful. Applicants should not submit speculative funding applications.
