Parliament is seeking applications for art exhibitions

19 June 2019

Calling all artists!

For some years, Parliament’s Bowen House exhibition space has been used to display the work of groups of artists from across the country. From painting to photography, from etching to embroidery – it’s all been on show and open for the public to visit.

Now, Parliament is seeking applications from the public for art exhibitions to be displayed in 2020, and it’s easier to apply than ever! Our aim is to showcase groups of artists, from all backgrounds, with a strong link to New Zealand. If this sounds like you, read on to find out about the application process and how you could have your work on show at Parliament!

How to apply

You’ll need to submit a proposal form along with images of your art to the Curator of the Parliamentary Collection. Please note, all proposals must be from a group of artists (minimum 5). Your application will then be considered by the Artworks Committee which will meet in August/September to decide the full year schedule of exhibitions

We’ll advise all applicants of the outcome of their submission by October 2019. Unfortunately due to the anticipated high level of interest, not all applications will be successful. However, if you aren’t selected this time around, you’re always welcome to apply again next year. More information can be found at www.parliament.nz

More detailed information about the submission process, and what is required, can be found on the proposal form. If, after reading through the form, you have any questions please contact art.exhibitions@parliament.govt.nz
