Exhibition Submissions

While the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia does not actively solicit exhibition proposals, submissions that are received will be reviewed by the Exhibition Review Committee once per year.

As we attempt to reduce our impact on the environment, our submissions process is going paperless and we will no longer accept submissions through the mail. If you are interested in introducing your work to the curatorial team at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, we ask that you submit the following content as a single PDF to michael.mccormack@novascotia.ca.

  • Letter of intent
  • Artist statement
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Selection of images and image list
  • Relevant support material (reviews, essays, publications, etc)

The gallery will keep submission materials on file for consideration and future reference. Given the large volume of exhibition proposals received by the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia please allow a minimum of twelve months for formal letters of reply.

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is located on Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq Nation. Our two locations are in K’jipuktuk (Halifax) and Keespongwitk (Yarmouth). We are all Treaty people, and our relationship is based on peace and friendship.

The Gallery’s Exhibition Review process is largely on hold as we prepare for our move to a new building, which is currently in the design competition phase. Our capacity to program new work during this transition may be limited.
