Intermedia Gallery
Call for Submissions 2020/21

Wed 6 November 2019 — Wed 15 January 2020

Intermedia is an independent gallery space funded by Glasgow City Council and managed by CCA in partnership with Glasgow Life. The gallery is located within CCA but operates independently of CCA’s curated exhibition programme.

Exhibitions are selected by a panel that includes representatives of both CCA, Glasgow Life and the city’s independent visual arts sector. The costs of the gallery’s overheads are covered and a small subsidy is provided towards exhibitors’ costs (£600).

Applications are received from a wide variety of individuals and groups, and exhibitions are selected by a panel of artists and arts professionals based on criteria of quality of work and creative development. In return, artists take full responsibility for organising, curating, installing, publicising, invigilating, and de-installing their exhibition, all in line with CCA’s own Health and Safety guidelines. CCA will provide additional marketing and admin support.

Submissions from Glasgow-based practitioners and from artists who will not be in full-time education at the time of exhibition will be prioritised. UK-wide and international proposals will be accepted if the proposal demonstrates an invigilation plan for the exhibition.

Historically, Intermedia’s programme has aimed to support emerging artists working in Glasgow. We recognise that emerging is a word often associated with age; however, we believe that an artistic practice can ‘emerge’ or ‘re-emerge’ at any stage in life. The overall selection aims to find a balance between artistic content, contemporary discourse and different media. The selection process is consciously non-discriminatory against gender, sexuality, ethnicity and disability. If you have any questions about the application process, please feel free to get in touch.

How to apply

Proposals for exhibitions at Intermedia for the period July 2020 – April 2021 have now closed.
