Want to exhibit your work? Participate in a residency? Gain curatorial experience? Blindside gallery has launched a range of initiatives for 2018 and applications are open now.

Blindside gallery


An artist-run-initiative, Blindside presents a diverse program of experimental creative practice that supports artists, writers and curators at any stage of their development, and connects them with the community.

2018 Exhibition Program

Blindside now invites proposals for its 2018 Exhibition Program from emerging, mid-career and established artists, curators, collectives or collaborators to present solo or group exhibitions, as well as events, performances, screenings and ephemeral projects.

One or both gallery spaces are available for shows. For more information and gallery floorplans, email Martina Copley, Gallery Coordinator. (info@BLINDSIDE.org.au)

Applications for the 2018 Exhibition Program close on Monday 15 May 2017.

Emerging Curator Mentorship

Blindside is also offering an Emerging Curator Mentorship in 2017, supported by Creative Victoria. Emerging curators are invited to submit a proposal for an exhibition across both gallery spaces in December, exploring bold and exciting ideas.

The successful applicant will receive a $3,000 stipend and six months of mentoring by curator Emily Cormack, focused on curatorial research and exhibition development.

Applications for the Emerging Curator Mentorship close on Monday 3 April 2017.

Regional Arts Residency

Finally, Blindside is partnering with Cowwarr Art Space to present the Blindside Regional Arts Residency, also supported by Creative Victoria.

A four-week residency at Cowwarr Art Space is on offer for emerging, mid-career and established artists practicing in any medium. A $200 stipend will be offered, and the successful applicant will have the opportunity to present a studio exhibition at Cowwarr Art Space at the end of the residency, however fully resolved work is not a requirement.

Applications for the Blindside Regional Arts Residency close on Monday 3 April 2017.
