Q. What does it mean to consider the exhibition venue?

A. This means that you have given thought to how artworks will be displayed in the space given the constraints of the venue, such as multifunctional use and heritage overlay.

Q. Can I drill into the ceiling?

A. No. Boadle Hall is protected by a heritage overlay and modifications cannot be made to the building. Artworks can be suspended from the beams in consultation with gallery staff.

Q. Can I present projection artwork?

A. Boadle Hall is a light-filled space and not suited to projection artwork. Previous exhibitions have successfully presented video works on monitors.

Q. Can I suspend an artwork from the cross-beams above the exhibition space?

A. Boadle Hall is not well-suited to suspending artworks due to the environmental constraints of the gallery, which include drafts and the heritage overlay of the building. However, lightweight artworks weighing less than 10kg may be suspended with no use of drills, hooks, nails, or adhesive on the cross-beams. 

Q. Can I present a sound artwork with amplified audio?

A. Yes. However, consideration needs to be made to the multi-use nature of Boadle Hall, which includes a workshop and public program space behind the exhibition area. During public programs, amplified sound will need to be played on headphones or temporarily muted. Public programs occur in Boadle Hall approximately once a week and sometimes take place outside of normal operating hours, but some cross-over does occur.

Q. Can I propose a project with more than one artist?

A. Yes. You can propose a project with more than one artist, however the total exhibitor fee for Boadle Hall is $1,000. Limited available space, walkways and overall installation of artworks should be carefully considered for multi-artist proposals. The exhibitor fee (and Superannuation Guarantee) will be paid to one nominated artist.

Q. Is additional support provided for public programs?

A. Yes. Incinerator Gallery will provide staffing, administration, ticketing, marketing support, and basic art supplies. The $1,000 fee must also cover the artist fee and materials for the public program. We encourage you to consider submitting an application for a Community Grant.
