Exhibiting at Photospace Gallery
Photospace Gallery has been dedicated to presenting photography as an art form and means of communication since it opened in December 1998. The gallery has hosted literally hundreds of exhibitions by emerging and established artists from New Zealand and overseas.
Photospace Gallery represents a number of artists and exhibits their work regularly, but the gallery is always open to providing new and emerging photographers the opportunity to exhibit their photography, and there are a certain number of gallery slots available annually for new exhibitors.
Exhibition proposals and/or general questions should be directed to gallery owner James Gilberd. Email is preferred.
Exhibition proposals should include:
Exhibitions are selected and curated by the gallery owner, but exhibition proposals by curators for group shows are most welcome.
Note: if your photographs fall into the general categories of Travel, Scenic Landscape, or Close-ups of Nature, they will have to be of exceptionally high quality, and/or extraordinary to merit an exhibition.
Most proposals are made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org See contact for postal/street address, etc.
If you are interested in working through a solo exhibition idea as a photography course, please see Photocourse 4, which is run from Photospace Gallery and supervised by John Williams and James Gilberd.
We also offer Photocourse 3, which is aimed at producing a group photographic exhibition.
The Photospace Gallery rooms are shared with Gilberd Marriott Gallery, which annually runs 4-6 exhibitions of artwork in mediums other than photography. Click on the graphics on the right to see gallery rooms. The wall dimensions give the amount of usable, clear wall space. The room will be chosen to suit the work to be exhibited, and is of course dependent on availability. Exhibition planning and room allocation typically runs 12-18 months ahead.
