Intermedia Gallery 2023-24 Call for Submissions

Centre for Contemporary Arts Glasgow (CCA) is pleased to announce a new call for Intermedia Gallery proposals. Formally an independent gallery space funded by Glasgow City Council (Glasgow Life) and located on King Street, Glasgow, Intermedia Gallery then found a new home in CCA from 2006 onward.

Given the history and importance that Intermedia Gallery has represented to early career artists since its inception, CCA aims to continue the ethos of the programme. Utilising a recent award of pandemic relief funding from Creative Scotland, we have also been able to address the support offered to artists within the programme. The budget offered has been increased, with invigilation and an aspect of install support now also provided by CCA. As before, Intermedia Gallery will be based on an open-call process, existing independently of CCA’s curated exhibition programme.

Beyond convening the selection committee, it is important to emphasise that CCA maintains a light-touch involvement in the space and artists are expected to take the lead on curating, publicising and installing/ uninstalling. This is in contrast to the way we research, develop and curate exhibitions in our ground floor spaces which are not open to proposal.

Proposals will be selected by CCA’s programme team and an artist invited from the previous round of Intermedia exhibitions.

Overview of support
– £1,000 budget per exhibition.
– 8 exhibition slots available across 2023-24.
– Invigilation provided by CCA throughout the exhibition, a total of 17 days (11am-6pm) and an opening evening across 3 ½ weeks.
– Up to a maximum of 3 days (21 hours) install support with a member of the CCA technical team, primary responsibility for install/ deinstall lies with the artist(s), with exceptions in the case of those with specific access needs.
– An aspect of marketing and communications support, inclusion in CCA e-newsletter, social media and website. Access to CCA photocopier to print A3 posters (x30)
– Available to individual or group exhibitions.
– Not open to those in education at the proposed time of exhibition.
– Opportunity to display relevant work or research concurrently on CCA Annex, CCA’s online project space.
– A separate budget for accessibility – provided for artists who may face specific barriers to participating in the programme.

Submissions from Glasgow-based artists will be prioritised.
