Call for Exhibition Proposals 2024 

Lake House Arts  

We are excited to invite artists at every career stage to be a part of our exhibition programme in 2024. From emerging talents and recent graduates to seasoned creators, we are dedicated to showcasing a diverse array of artists and collectives.  

Situated on Barry's Point Reserve, Lake House Arts offers an A* Heritage rated building which is imbued with history.  

We are accepting proposals across all of our exhibition spaces (Becroft Gallery, Ogle Gallery, Pop Up Studio, Tindall Room and Satellite exhibition spaces) for both solo and group exhibitions.   

Floor plans of the Becroft Gallery, Ogle Gallery and Pop Up Studio are available to download here.  

Exhibition seasons in 2024 will last for 3 - 4 weeks. Opening celebrations occur at 4pm during the first Sunday of your exhibition.  

We are looking for compelling exhibition proposals which demonstrate a body of work that is either exhibition-ready, or close to being exhibition-ready.  

Lake House Arts provides staff support to help realise the staging of your exhibition, in addition to promotional support in the lead up to your exhibition opening.   

Collaboration Opportunities: If you are not seeking a solo exhibition, we can facilitate pairings for collaborative joint exhibitions.  

Lake House Arts also strives to tailor our exhibition and events programme to run in tandem with other culutral and artistic festivals in Auckland. These include Chinese New Year, Auckland Photography Festival, Pride Festival, Ramadan, Eid, Diwali, Matariki and Auckland Heritage Festival. Please clarify in your proposal if your exhibition will be aligned with any of these festivals.
