Exhibition Proposals

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at the Brunei Gallery,SOAS.
Unfortunately due to the Coronovirus outbreak the gallery is now closed to the public until further notice.

The galleries are currently fully scheduled with a programme of exhibitions until 2022 and in response to Covid-19, the gallery will not be considering any new exhibition proposals at the current time.

I would advise that you refer to our website on a regular basis which will update you upon any changes.

Thank you for your patience.

Thank you for your interest in submitting an exhibition proposal to the Brunei Gallery, SOAS. There is a proposal procedure, which everyone is asked to follow, so that proposals are treated fairly. Please read the Exhibition Proposal details carefully before filling in the Exhibition Proposal Form.

The Galleries are run on a non-profit making basis but to cover some of the running costs there is a fee charged that includes use of space with assistance and provision of facilities and existing display equipment.

The exhibition programme changes quarterly and space is offered in 3-month slots only: Jan-Mar, April-June, July-Sept and Oct-Dec, included in this is the installation and takedown periods required.

Gallery Use Fees:

  • Basement gallery - 260m2 = £25,000 (+ VAT)
  • Ground floor gallery – 120m2 = £12,000 (+VAT)
  • First Floor gallery – 30m2 = £2,500 (+ VAT)

*Please Note. Where an exhibition/project budget is not able to afford these costs, it is possible to make a request to SOAS to support an exhibition by waiving these fees as an in-kind contribution. For this the exhibition proposal needs to illustrate its additional benefits and relevance to SOAS, levels of community and external engagement and involvement with students.

The Ground Floor and Lower Level galleries are currently provisionally scheduled until 2021 and we would not be able to consider anything for these areas before that time.

First Floor area within the Galleries usually used only for smaller photography exhibitions is currently provisionally scheduled until the July – Sept 2020 slot.

Proposals for exhibitions are welcomed and reviewed by the Brunei Gallery Advisory Panel at quarterly meetings. If you would like to be considered to exhibit at the gallery please examine the floor  plans and complete the proposal formand return to Joy Onyejiako.
