Exhibition proposals

Exciting news! Mothership Studios is opening its doors to guest curators.

We do short shows: an opening night and 5 days, gallery open 12-3 every day.

In decades of curating and minding exhibitions we’ve observed hardly anybody coming in after the opening night. There’s usually someone’s mum on day 3, “HI I’M SO SORRY I COULDN’T MAKE THE OPENING NIGHT WHERE’S OUR TREV’S WORK OH THERE ISN’T IT LOVELY WELL THANKS BYE” but unless your hustle game is strong enough to pull a journo, nobody’s coming.

A 3-week show is traditional, probably something to do with the signal speed of snail mail and steam trains. It’s also a waste. We can show more artists this way, and the layout for gallery hire is overall smaller, an important thing for young artists and students.

Without further ado, here’s the form. Have at it.

This person is responsible for making payments and co-ordinating artists and will be assisted/supervised by the Mothership Studios curator-at-large.
We have to have both phone and email for the contact person. Also they have to actually respond to messages. No seriously.
We're going to start publicity pretty fast after confirmation so you're going to want to have thought about this already.
Just briefly tell us about themes and concerns, media used and/or why these artists in particular.
Date range of when you hope to have the show. We will get back to you with possible dates if your proposal is accepted.
Whether you are booking the small front gallery only or the full space. The curator-at-large may make a determination that you don’t have enough work to occupy the deceptively enormous main space and adjust the booking. This is one of those things where we might actually know better, so trust us.

Prices are being worked out at present but will resemble day rates for most galleries in the Inner West.
