Artists can approach BRAG at any time to apply for an exhibition. All proposals are assessed by the BRAG Curatorial Team, based on the principles and objectives of the BRAG Exhibition Policy.
Artists can also show their work at BRAG by taking part in our regular prize exhibitions, including the Bunbury Biennale, Noongar Country and South West Art Now. Call-outs for these exhibitions are published through our email newsletter and social media channels. Keep your eye out during months:
- June/July - South West Art Now / Bunbury Biennale
- March - Noongar Country (open to Indigenous artists residing on Noongar Country)
Our program of exhibitions also includes touring exhibitions which include the work of WA, National and International artists. Touring exhibitions are sourced from various organisations such as Artisan, Art on the Move and IASKA, amongst others. Where possible BRAG provides letters of support and critical feedback to artists seeking to submit exhibitions for touring.
