STEP 3: PRESENT PROPOSAL TO A RELEVANT SCHOOL OF ART RESEARCH CLUSTER
The School of Art Galleries has a pivotal role in supporting research in the School of Art and, as such, proposals for exhibitions at the School of Art Galleries (Project Space/Spare Room and the School of Art Gallery) are sought directly through the School of Art Research Clusters.
Proposals are firstly to be presented to a School of Art Research Cluster for endorsement and then, through the Research Cluster Leader or his/her representative, to the School of Art Galleries Advisory Committee for consideration. Cluster Research Leaders may propose a maximum of 4 exhibitions for consideration by the School of Art Gallery Advisory Commitee at each call. Research Clusters may present individual exhibition projects or a suite of exhibitions that explores a particular idea or ideas.
Please note that external exhibition proposals sent directly to the School of Art Galleries from the non-RMIT art community will be forwarded to the most relevant School of Art Research Cluster Leader for consideration by their Research Cluster.
Please consult the Research Cluster Leader's schedule so as to allow enough time between the proposal deadline (listed below) and its planning and consideration.
STEP 4: PRESENTATION OF PROPOSALS TO THE SCHOOL OF ART GALLERY ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Proposals will be sent on your behalf (by the Research Cluster Leaders) to the School of Art Galleries Coordinator for compilation and distribution to the School of Art Gallery Advisory Commitee. (Deadlines for endorsed proposals are listed above.) This committee is made up of representatives from studio and theory areas from both the Higher Education and TAFE sectors of the School of Art. From 2010, proposals submitted to the committee are assessed and moderated by external industry representatives.
The School of Art Galleries Coordinator will present the proposal to the School of Art Galleries Advisory Committee for discussion, evaluation and selection. All decisions made by the School of Art Galleries Advisory Committee are final. Once a decision has been reached, applicants will receive a written response to their application. Approved proposals will be supplied with a copy of the policy and guidelines for exhibiting. The policy and guidelines must be adhered to; any changes to proposals must be discussed and approved by the School of Art Galleries Coordinator. School of Art Galleries reserves the right to cancel any exhibition that does not adhere to the policy and guidelines
