The Castlefield Gallery Associates Members Exhibition provides the successful applicant with a budget of £2,000 to produce an exhibition as part of Castlefield Gallery’s exhibition programme. It supports members of Castlefield Gallery Associates to realise an ambitious, exciting and timely project. The first Members Exhibition (spring 2019) was Sources, curated by Castlefield Gallery Associate Joe Preston and selected by Dr Je Yun Moon and Castlefield Gallery Curator Matthew Pendergast. The next Members Exhibition will be Fanspeak, curated by Shy Bairns and selected by Nottingham Contemporary Director Sam Thorne and Castlefield Gallery Curator Matthew Pendergast.
The guest selector for the spring 2020 Members Exhibition will be Ryan Gander; the deadline is 12 noon, Tuesday 5 November 2019. Please note that, for this exhibition, the upper gallery is not available and proposals must be for an exhibition or other project using the downstairs gallery space only.
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.
