Application Process

The Student Space Gallery application process takes place in September and March of each academic year. Look for posters and applications around the college in the weeks leading up to the application due date.

Submission Guidelines

  • Work submitted for exhibition should be the work that is shown in the application. Additional pieces can be added 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 Student Space Gallery Jury and gallery manager reserve the right to approve/disapprove the installation of exhibitions that are inconsistent with applications.
  • Note that you will be responsible for costs associated with vinyl and publicity for your exhibition, and will be held accountable for any exhibition-related damages left in the galleries after your show.

All applications must include the following components to be considered complete:

1.  Slides:

    • Submissions are limited to slides in Power Point format only (uploaded through our online application); no actual work will be considered as a submission. Please save your files with your name included (ie: lastname_SSGS16).
    • Submissions must be between five and ten slides, labeled with titles and dimensions. All slides must also be listed on an accompanying slide list giving each work's title (or number), dimensions, and the media used.

2.  Supplemental Material Document: Your Supplemental Materials Document must be submitted as a MS Word document or PDF and should not include your name or other identifying information. Your Supplemental Material Document must contain the following information in ONE document:

    • Slide List: This should correspond with the work included in your PowerPoint (or number), media, and dimensions
    • Artist Statement: 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.
    • Projected Budget: 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.
    • Space 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.
