OPENING TIMES

Exhibition Proposals

Southampton City Art Gallery has a varied programme of contemporary art and historic collection based exhibitions. The programme is planned at least two years in advance and usually entails eight to ten temporary exhibitions per year. Most exhibitions are the result of proposals generated by our in-house curatorial teams or collaborations with other institutions. The majority of exhibitions and commissions arise from direct invitations to artists and curators. Therefore we can only rarely accommodate unsolicited projects.

The Gallery’s Foyer space, is dedicated to showing the work of local and emerging artists and we welcome proposals for this space.

The biennial open exhibition is another opportunity for artists to show their work at Southampton City Art Gallery.
