Call for Curators
Description

The Gallery at BAG is now accepting exhibition proposals from artists and curators for the 2012 exhibition season.

The gallery is available as an Exhibition Space Rental or to use as a guest through the gallery’s Guest Curator Exhibition Program. Both options require submitting a complete Curatorial Proposal.

Applicants may apply to both programs.

Exhibition Space Rental

There are multiple openings for 2012 Exhibition Space Rental, and the exhibition’s length is determined by the renter—at a cost of $1,000 per week.

Artists and curators renting the gallery are provided full use of the gallery, a gallery sitter throughout the exhibition, as well as an opening reception. Opening receptions are promoted on

brooklynartistsgym.com and e-mail invitations are sent to over 4,000 BAG e-mail subscribers. During the reception, renters receive access to a sound system with an iPod-ready hookup, a coat rack, a utility sink, and garbage removal. A staff member will be present throughout the event. Brooklyn Artists Gym does not take commission on artwork sold during an Exhibition Space Rental.

Proposals for the Exhibition Space Rental are accepted on a rolling basis and dates are scheduled after acceptance. The Gallery at BAG can only consider complete Curatorial Proposals—see page 2.

Guest Curator Exhibition Program

The Guest Curator Exhibition Program has just one opening per year. After the selection process, recipients of the Guest Curator Exhibition schedule a free two-to-three week exhibition with The Gallery at BAG during 2012.

The curator receives free access to the gallery, an opening reception, a gallery sitter throughout the exhibition, an exhibition catalogue, gallery labels, and extensive marketing services—including flyers, prominent space on brooklynartistsgym.com, and an e-mail invitation to over 4,000 BAG e-mail subscribers. During the reception, the guest curator is provided with access to a sound system with an iPod-ready hookup, a coat rack, a utility sink, and garbage removal. A staff member will be present throughout the reception. Brooklyn Artists Gym receives a 30% commission on all artwork sold.

The deadline for proposals for the Guest Curator Exhibition Program is February 1, 2012. The Gallery at BAG can only consider complete Curatorial Proposals.
