We are looking for cohesive bodies of works that look at the human experience, whatever that means to you. Local, national or international art is welcome. A successful application will succinctly discuss exactly what it is that you intend to do in the space.
We are here to help but you’ll need to get busy. It’s your job to be a self-promoting machine, to follow up on sales opportunities and network your way to a really successful exhibition.
Also, other events will take place in the space over the course of the exhibition. This is an opportunity for increased exposure, networking and potentially sales.
Successful exhibitions often include live demonstrations, performances or other events, but you should know that projectors don’t work well in the Nishi Gallery (due to all the glorious natural light in here).

A standard exhibition hire is three weeks including bump in and bump out. Ideally, this means bump in on a Monday and Tuesday, finalise the hang on a Wednesday, open Thursday and launch either the Thursday night or on the Friday. Bump out on the Sunday afternoon after opening hours. If you need more time, we can arrange that; we can also organize some help if you need when it comes to bump out. The space needs to be clear and handed back in the same way you got it.
We can help with invigilation of the space during standard weekday hours, but its your job to organise invigilation of the space over the weekend.
You will be responsible for the transport, install, co-curation, promotion, sale, and removal of your show. We can go through all the procedures and such when you sign the contract for hiring out the Nishi Gallery.
Thanks! We look forward to hearing from you.

NewActon. One word, one fine place to live, work and just be. We took the rulebook, looked up classic principles of excellence in architecture and urban design, ripped out the pages that prescribe same-same and characterless, and added a chapter entitled, “How to create a truly innovative cultural precinct that shifts the status quo, and be awarded multiple times for doing so.” And then we scribbled our name on the title page in crayon.
Stay in the loop by being the pal to our (digital) pen.
