We are calling for curators and artists to propose new light box exhibitions for our 2020/21 programme.

Each exhibition will run for approximately four months each, from late 2020.

We are also calling for Matariki light box proposals from Māori curators and artists for exhibition during the Matariki festivals in 2021, as a time of renewal and an acknowledgement of the natural cycles of the universe.
