Rules for Submission
- Completed applications are due to the Student Activities Office on March 26 by 4 pm.
- All work exhibited in the SSG must belong to the same body of work and be consistent (size, style, medium) with the slides submitted to the jury for review.
- All work you intend to exhibit must be gallery ready.
- PowerPoint Slideshows are the only format we will accept. Supplemental materials must be submitted in a MS Word document or PDF (see below for required application components).
- The jury and coordinator will work to secure one of your choices; however, please realize you may be asked to show earlier or later depending on all schedules. Please indicate dates that are not possible.
- Work submitted for exhibition should be the work that is shown in the application.
- Additional pieces may be added (upon staff approval) as long as they belong to the same body of work and are consistent in size, style, and media.
- If you intend to show work other than the slides submitted with this application, you must indicate your intentions in your proposal for the use of the space.
- The gallery manager reserves the right to approve/disapprove the installation of exhibitions that are inconsistent with material submitted during the application process.
- Should your proposal be selected, you will be financially responsible for costs associated with publicity, installing your work, and will be held responsible for returning the gallery to its original condition after your exhibition.
- Applications remain the property of the Student Space Gallery until the completion of your exhibition.
- Student Space Gallery is not responsible for applications not picked up by the end of the academic year.
All applications must include the following components to be considered complete:
Powerpoint file with 5-10 slides of your proposed work
- PowerPoint Slideshows are the only format we will accept. Supplemental materials must be submitted in a MS Word document or PDF.
- If you are an individual, please submit 5-10 slides of your work. If you are a group, please submit 5 slides from each artist and a group artist statement with your proposal.
- In the notes section, you may include the title of the piece, media and dimensions, but this information can be distracting when it appears on the slide with the image of your work.
- Be sure your photo documentation highlights the strongest components of your work!
- Check the format of your presentation on a Mac and PC!
- Be sure to label your files with your Last Name in the title (e.g.: LastName_SSGSlides, or LastName_ArtistStatement).
- This should include the title of the works in the PowerPoint (or number), media, and dimensions
- Tip: Be sure this corresponds with your PowerPoint!
- Your artist statement should explain your intentions and the concept underlying your work. It should supplement the visual materials you provide so the jury understands the direction you intend to go, and what you are trying to achieve with your exhibition.
- It is good to think through the costs associated with your installation so you are not caught off guard down the road. Please provide a budget of the materials you will need to execute your installation. Keep in mind that you are PERSONALLY responsible for the costs associated with hanging and installing your work, so be realistic in your proposal.
- This should include how many pieces you intend to hang, the sizes, configuration, and any other plans that would help the jury to get a comprehensive understanding of your proposed exhibition.
- Tip: Proposals for installations and performances should be written out with accompanying diagrams, sketches, or videos.
Videos may be uploaded via the application when applicable
