In 2024, we will be celebrating the 50th year of the George Paton Gallery. We are seeking proposals from current University of Melbourne students for our semester one 2024 exhibition program. Applications are open to all students.
We invite you to come and chat to us about your ideas for an exhibition, even if they are in their tentative stages. Email us at email@example.com to make a time to come in, explore the gallery space and discuss your proposal. We are happy to give feedback on draft proposals and to support you through the application process.
The George Paton Gallery is located on level one of the Arts and Cultural Building on Monash Road in the New Student Precinct at Parkville campus. The gallery space measures 5.670 - 6.625 metres wide and 22.360 metres long. There is a built in niche for invigilating the gallery as you enter, a store room off the gallery and a lift that takes you and your artwork into the storage space beside the gallery.
Exhibitions are divided into Front and Rear galleries, with the Front gallery usually showing solo exhibitions and the Rear Gallery group and curated exhibitions. Each exhibition is of two weeks duration.
This is an exciting opportunity for students to exhibit free in a custom made space in the centre of cultural activity at the New Student Precinct. The Arts and Culture building also houses the Arts Lab next door to the GPG and Union House Theatres and rehearsal spaces, and Arts and Culture staff offices, including the office of our Creative Arts officers.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, or wish to make a time to come and chat to us about your ideas for an exhibition. Exhibitions are free. We welcome ideas for projects that engage viewers and exhibitors, experiment with form and concept and push us beyond what we know.
