The Corban Estate Arts Centre public Homestead Galleries presents a high quality and engaging exhibition programme that includes both nationally and locally recognised artists, curators and creatives. Exhibitions feature a wide range of visual art mediums that respond to contemporary, historical, social and cultural themes to represent a diverse range of artistic perspectives. The annual exhibition programme also links to a selection of regional and local arts and cultural events. Exhibitions are accompanied by a full range of free public programmes including artist talks, exhibition tours and art workshops for kids and adults.
Every year Corban Estate Arts Centre opens a round of Exhibition Proposals to ensure that all artists, curators and creatives have an opportunity to submit their work for consideration to our Curator and Exhibitions Manager.
We accept proposals from practitioners of any artistic discipline, individually or in groups, with a higher priority given to emerging and mid-career artists, curators and creatives. We seek proposals that enable dialogue, complement our existing exhibition themes, grow and extend audiences, and contribute to a diverse art community.
Homestead Galleries especially welcomes exhibition proposals that align with our Kids Art Festival 2024 theme, Oceans and Origins. The ocean holds, and connects, many histories. As such, we hope to exhibit work that explores ideas around the ocean and its ecosystems, as well as the migration of peoples and their connections to the ocean.
We ask that you email your proposal to our Curator and Exhibitions Manager in a single PDF file that includes with the following contents, supporting images and links:
Please note: We understand that the exhibition proposal process is often tricky and time-consuming, so we are committed to minimising barriers where necessary. Not only do we encourage early-career artists, curators and creatives to apply but we also welcome any questions they may have regarding the process.
The Homestead Galleries are located at the heart of Corban Estate Arts Centre in the original Homestead of the Corban family who lived on the estate when it was operating as a winery. The Homestead is a Heritage building finished in 1923 and includes three exhibition spaces: Gallery One, Gallery Two and Gallery Three. (Galleries Two and Three are connected through an open doorway and are typically used as one conjoining exhibition space). Please find a floor plan of the complete upper Homestead here.
If you have an indication of which space you would prefer for your proposed exhibition, please mention this in your proposal PDF.
Proposals will be responded to within 6 weeks of the proposal deadline. Please direct all enquiries to the Curator and Exhibitions Manager, Melina Payne at email@example.com or (09) 838 4455 x 203
