Members Exhibition

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. A call out for the next Members Exhibition (February 2023) will be shared in the coming spring.

Castlefield Gallery’s current exhibition, Jocelyn McGregor: Mantle was selected from Associate members’ proposals by guest selector Mariama Attah, curator at Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool and Castlefield Gallery Curator and Deputy Director Matthew Pendergast.


How to apply:

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.
