Thank you for your interest in submitting to our gallery programme of text + work.

The text + work concept promotes and provides a forum for challenging dialogue between innovative contemporary art, design, and media and its theoretical context.

The aim is to invite critical written commentary on visual imagery in order to encourage a discourse on contemporary practice and a forum for challenging and productive debate.

It provides a platform for practitioners, writers and curators who wish to examine and extend the boundaries between contemporary practice and critical discourse.

Our information pack, pdf 1.83 MB includes the manifesto for text + work, the policy, our gallery terms and conditions, a plan of the gallery space and a reply form for you to enter details of your proposal. We also ask for your application to be supported with a detailed proposal, images and CVs of curator or writer(s) and artist(s).

The University College’s Gallery Committee meets twice a year to select proposals for the text+work programme. The waiting list for exhibitions is approximately two years. The gallery can only respond to proposals that are successful; this is due to the volume of applications received and processed each year.

Please enclose a SAE if you wish for any of your submitted material to be returned to you.

We look forward to receiving your proposal for consideration in our text + work programme.
