Frequently Asked Questions
Exhibitions Proposals Policy
The Mead Gallery’s exhibitions and commissions result from direct invitations to artists by members of the curatorial team, and is planned up to two years in advance. However, we also consider proposals from artists and curators. We would ask that each proposal takes into account our current, past and future exhibition programme as outlined in the ‘Programme’ pages of this website, and makes a specific case for the Mead Gallery as a venue. If you would like to submit a proposal, please send it to Fiona Venables, Assistant Curator, Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick, Coventry, CV4 7AL
Please include a SAE if you would like your proposal returned. Please do not send any original material or anything that you need returned to you within one month. Due to the high volume of proposals we receive, we cannot guarantee individual feedback.
The Mead Gallery does not hire its space for private exhibitions that would form part of its programme.
