Exhibitions Policy

The exhibitions programme is set 12 months in advance. 
It is curatorially driven and by invitation only.

The Dunedin Public Art Gallery will accept proposals for our Rear Window programme all year round, to be considered for the ongoing programme. The proposal must be for a single-channel moving image work, can include sound (only operating between 6am and 11pm), and a screening fee will be negotiated.
Proposals can be sent to: rearwindow@dcc.govt.nz
