Exhibition Proposals


ATTN: The Holland Project Galleries are programmed yearly by the Gallery Manager, and staff with input from our art community, and in accordance with our grant responsibilities. The proposal process is competitive and we cannot accept every proposal we receive. Proposals do help give the Holland Project Galleries insight into artists’ artwork, their ideas, their interest in our spaces, and how we can give them opportunities into our programming schedule.

Artists and curators of all ages are encouraged to apply for exhibition opportunities in any one of our four gallery spaces. Our exhibition schedule is booked six months to a year in advance with proposals being reviewed by the gallery committee about every 3-4 months. Within our regular exhibition schedule, we do leave slots open for pop-up shows, screenings, special performances, and weeklong exhibitions.

When applying for an exhibition opportunity, please consider which gallery space best suits your needs using the following guide:

MAIN GALLERY: The Main Gallery is the face of our 140 Vesta Street headquarters and highlights exceptional work by artists from Nevada and beyond. Work considered for exhibition speaks to today’s culture and broader discussions within the contemporary art world. Proposals from artists and curators with some exhibition history is preferred. Proposed projects should be fully developed, meaning they represent serious and ongoing artistic research/practice. Proposals should consider how they will utilize the entire exhibition space with the addition of the Hallway Gallery as needed. Past Exhibitions: Fantasies of Triumph | Hollow Home | Children Don’t Immigrate 

HALLWAY GALLERY: The Hallway Gallery is ideal for small projects including showcasing newer works/series in progress, small scale installation, few large pieces and many small/medium pieces, research projects, book projects, small sculpture and more. Artists and curators from anywhere in the world may apply and no exhibition history is required. This space is adjacent to the Main Gallery and its availability is dependent on if the main exhibition is utilizing the hallway or not. Past Exhibitions: Simulacra | The Constant Now | Retro-Catharsis, Powered By Gin

SERVA POOL: Our annex Serva Pool Gallery is ideal for artists working in performance, 4-D media, large scale installation, and other experimental practices. Serva Pool exhibitions typically run 2 weeks, but proposals for pop-up exhibitions are encouraged as well. Serva Pool can accommodate all media and no exhibition history is required. Past Exhibitions: Free Trampoline | Valley Song | The Architecture

SATELLITE GALLERY: Our off-site art space located inside Cafe Capello at 248 West 1st St. is ideal for first time exhibiting artists and curators as well as exhibitions with an all local line-up. This space can accommodate wall works only and 2-D media is preferred. Past Exhibitions: Familiar Faces | From My Head To My Toes | Los Rezos De La Revolucion
