Submitting an exhibition proposal

Unsolicited proposals

Manchester Art Gallery has a mixed programme of contemporary and historic, fine and decorative art, costume and photography exhibitions. The programme is planned two to three years in advance and usually entails four to six temporary exhibitions and three to four new collections displays per year. Our exhibitions and displays originate from our in-house curatorial team or are the result of direct invitations to artists or collaborations with other museums, galleries, universities or professional organisations. Our exhibition and display areas are not available for hire.

Due to the very high volume of proposals received, we regret that we are unable to review unsolicited proposals from individuals or their representatives.
