Youth Week 

We are looking for five artists aged 25 and under to participate in an exhibition for National Youth Week, opening on April 5th. Collab seeks to present the best in emerging art; so no matter the medium, we want to hear from you. Participants will have the opportunity to work with Collab’s curators to develop an exciting group exhibition, showcasing five of the best young artists in NSW. 

Past grad-show work or new work is welcome.
Selected participants will be required to pay $50 towards hanging, advertising and event costs.

General Call Out

Are you a Painter? Printmaker? Performer? Producer? Let’s collaborate!

Collab is looking for expressions of interest for our 2017 program. We are looking for artists to include in our forthcoming group shows and proposals for solo shows and for pre-existing groups. Artists are invited to submit applications using recent and/or forthcoming works. Your proposal does not need to be fully polished - we want to partner with you to help develop your idea.

Applicants should indicate if they are interested in participating in a group and/or solo show. Exhibition fees for solo shows are $500 per week. Group show participants pay a minimal fee towards the exhibition costs. Collab charges a 30% commission on any work sold. 

The exhibition fee includes: 

  • Curatorial support 
  • Gallery invigilation
  • Exhibition design, install and de-install 
  • Opening night expenses
  • Room sheet and text (if desired)
  • Marketing through Collab, Pine Street Creative Arts Centre and City of Sydney channels
