Agnes Etherington Art Centre accepts exhibition and program proposals on an ongoing basis. These are reviewed periodically, according to our needs and on a two-to-three-year advance planning cycle. For consideration, submit a brief outline of your proposal and documentation by email under the subject line “Submission,” to the attention of the Director.
While proposals 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 we are able to pursue. See our Exhibition Policy.
Queen’s University faculty in all disciplines are encouraged to explore exhibition initiatives and contribute to programs. For information, see more.
