Rent-free for Artists 2014


Exhibition proposals to exhibit at West Space are currently closed, sign up to our e-newsletter to receive information when these will re-open.

West Space encourages a diversity of work that contributes to broad contemporary art concerns: aesthetic, social, political and material. We aim to respond in a timely and inclusive way to current tendencies in international contemporary art, but we also take responsibility in leading discussion on issues that relate to our local context. We actively seek out experimentation, risk and innovation as an objective of the artistic program and support artists at all stages of their career.

West Space’s exhibition program is led by the experimentation and risks taken by contemporary artists at early and pivotal points in their career. In the application process West Space is very interested in hearing about the ideas and questions that drive artistic/curatorial practice. This is a key driving force that motivates us as a platform for testing experimental practices within a contemporary context.

Selected artists and curators work closely with West Space staff to develop their proposals, receiving critical feedback as well as practical support.  We welcome proposals by emerging and established practitioners, and applications for solo, collaborative or group exhibitions.

West Space only accepts online applications via our online form.

Prospective applicants should read through the sections How to Apply and Overview. We’ve also recently developed a Tips & feedback section, which we strongly recommend you read before applying.

Please note that West Space does not exhibit work by current undergraduate students. We will accept proposals from undergraduate students for exhibitions that will commence after their studies are complete.
