Applications for 1 week exhibitions at Pig Melon are now closed.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in having an event that would not suit a one week exhibition or the Pig Melon Shop Front Window (i.e. ambient music event, performance, film screening, talks, panel discussions) you can enquire at any time.
We encourage proposals from artists working in a diversity of forms including experimental music, visual art, installations, screenings, spoken word and intimate performance-based work. We are particularly interested in receiving proposals that respond to and work well in our space and benefit from the dynamic relationship between artists and audiences.
We try to support as many artists as we can and to be as accommodating as possible, however we can't always say yes to everything.
We prioritise projects and events that are:
- Well planned and considered
- Critically engaged
- Responsible and socially aware
- Site specific to the physical architecture of Pig Melon
- Responsive to the Indigenous history of our home on stolen land
Pig Melon charges a fee for each participant based on the duration they want to use the space (hourly or 1-5 days), the equipment they need to hire from Pig Melon and required assistance.
Please note art exhibitions run for a period of 5 days:
Opening reception: Friday 6-8pm
Gallery hours: 11-5pm Wednesday - Sunday
