Proposals

The Agnes Etherington Art Centre accepts exhibition and program proposals on an ongoing basis. These are reviewed periodically according to our needs. We normally plan exhibitions two to three years in advance. For consideration, submit a brief outline of your proposal and documentation by email under the subject line “Submission,” flagged to the attention of the Director, jan.allen@queensu.ca. While submissions are a valued part of our research―ensuring our awareness of emerging artists, new work, innovative presentation formats, and scholarship―only a small percentage of proposals can be realized. Due to the volume of submissions, we may respond only to those aligned with our research direction and capacity. See our Exhibition Policy.

Queen’s University faculty in all disciplines are encouraged to explore exhibition initiatives. For information about ways to be involved in our programs, see more.
