Artist and Curatorial Submissions to Rush Arts Galleries

Rush Gallery and Corridor Gallery exhibition program seeks to facilitate a contemporary dialogue between new audiences and emerging artists, curators and writers through thematically structured group exhibitions. A team of artists and curators reviews submissions annually. The gallery offers an excellent opportunity for independent curators to realize their projects in an established venue that makes innovative contributions to the contemporary art world.
