Curatorial Proposal Series



In Fall 2011, Gallery 263 hosted the first exhibition of the Curatorial Proposal Series. Gallery 263 requests artists and curators to submit proposals for our main exhibition program. Twice a year we review these exhibitions by committee for the upcoming season. The Series provides artists of all media and experience levels a chance to experiment with the organization and presentation of contemporary art.




Gallery 263 is accepting applications for its Fall 2013 exhibitions. At least 50% of exhibitions selected for the Curatorial Proposal Series will include local artists (from within the metro Boston area). Two exhibitions will be selected for Fall 2013. Group proposals are strongly encouraged.
