Exhibition proposals

The Ruskin Gallery has an open call policy for exhibitions.

Proposals can be made for the main gallery space, the balcony space or both spaces depending on the size of the exhibition. Where exhibitions are intended for the main gallery space only, our Programming Committee will try to schedule a separate exhibition for the balcony.

Exhibitions are usually programmed for four to five weeks (including install and get-out times), though this can vary.

Our Ruskin Gallery information booklet is below, and it contains details of the services we offer to our exhibitors. Please note that we don't have funds to pay for exhibitions. Proposals should demonstrate that exhibitions are financially provided for.

If you have any questions or would like to make an enquiry, please email [email protected]
