The Director of St Paul St Gallery welcomes individual and collaborative group proposals for consideration in the full schedule of exhibitions and events. The core programme of exhibitions and events is under the curatorial charge of the Director whose responsibility it is to curate a vibrant and significant programme of contemporary art and design work. This programme schedule is confirmed well in advance, including a season of AUT student graduating exhibitions every year.
Proposals to Galleries One and Two are considered by a selection panel made up of the gallery Director and selected external referees (panel listed below). Decisions are made both on the basis of the quality of the submission and on the appropriateness for inclusion in the overall balance of the curated programme.There are no designated submission deadlines. It is suggested that you make contact with the Gallery to express your interest prior to submitting a proposal.
Those wishing to submit a proposal for consideration should follow the submission guidelines available below.
Once a decision is reached the Director will notify applicants. Resubmissions are not encouraged unless recommended by the Director and External Referees.
The AUT School of Art and Design Gallery Committee (see list of members below) is not involved in the curatorial process or the selection of independently submitted proposals. The role of the committee is to set policy guidelines, decide on management issues and offer strategic direction. However, Gallery Committee members are available if you would like advice on submitting a proposal, if you need guidance in fulfilling the proposal requirements or have questions about any aspect of the selection process. Your consultation will in no way influence the decisions of the Director and external referees whose decisions are independent and final.
