Call for entries, Expressions of interest
Work classification
Community & Access Arts, Design, Visual Arts


This year Depot Artspace celebrates 21 years of serving the creative community by continuing to adapt to an ever-changing and increasingly challenging environment while upholding what people value about the Depot.

This changing creative environment needs proactive galleries willing to step away from traditional exhibition forms and formats and offer diverse new opportunities. 

The creative edge is a place, a line of intersection between the definitive, the known and the uncertain, the terrain yet to be explored...

So we want to hear from:

  • Recent graduates and emerging artists across all visual arts genres.
  • Installation or conceptual artists.
  • Exhibitors whose work relates to a signature event such as, Artweek Auckland, Auckland Photography Festival and Matariki etc…
  • Exhibitors addressing social or environmental issues.

What we can offer you:

  • One of the key components of the Depot valued by its members and visitors is the experience of community. Through both the culture of the Depot and its exhibitions, we draw people together.
  • We accept exhibition proposals from practitioners of any artistic discipline, individually or in groups.
  • Depot Galleries will contribute towards some costs for selected exhibitions.


How to apply

What we need from you:

  1. A 350-500 word description of your proposed project, which includes:
  • Key themes in the exhibition
  • Media
  • An indication of your target audience
  • Ideas of a related public programme such as an artist talk or exhibition based event.
  1. 4-5 images of the works you intend to exhibit or examples of relevant previous works
  2. A concise one-page CV
  3. Possible dates for the exhibition – is it relevant to a specific event or festival?

Email your proposal to the Gallery Manager, Amber Lamana, amber.lamana@depotartspace.co.nz in a single PDF file that includes: Your exhibition description, CV, supporting images and proposed dates.

(Please note files must be under 5MB to be received via email, otherwise please use a service such as WeTransfer.com)

Applications close: 27 October 2017, 5pm (Proposals will be responded to within 3-4 weeks of the proposal deadline)
