Gallery Applications

Nexus Arts is currently accepting applications for the following visual arts opportunities:


Applications close Monday 30th September

Now in its fifth year, the Nexus Arts Emerging Artist Studio Residency program has catered for a number of outstanding and significant exhibition, creative and professional development outcomes for South Australian emerging artists from culturally diverse backgrounds and/or who’s work engages with culture or cultural diversity.

The Residency will give to the successful applicant access to a free CBD-located studio space for up to 3 months during which they will be able to develop new work for a significant exhibition at Nexus Arts. The opportunity is offered twice a year, aligning with two of Adelaide’s esteemed cultural festivals, allowing emerging artists to be supported in developing a significant professional visual arts project and showcase it to a wide audience. At Nexus Arts’ discretion and subject to negotiation, applications may be considered for other times in the year, depending on our own programming and the articulated needs or aspirations of the artist.

Expressions Of Interest
Nexus Visual Arts Program

Applications ongoing

Nexus curates its program yearly, but we welcome proposals at any time from established and emerging artists and curators from any cultural background, working in any art form, whose work focuses on or embraces notions of culturally diverse arts practice and identities.

Expressions of interest may be either submitted for our Visual Arts Program or for Short Notice projects. Although aligning with Nexus Arts’ aspirations to assist artists from culturally diverse backgrounds showcase their work, submitting an expression of interest cannot guarantee an exhibition outcome.

For further information about the opportunity, including details, forms and how to apply, please download the Gallery Expression of Interest form in the sidebar
