Main Gallery Exhibition: Larry Weyand & Arelia Maxwell, 2020. Photographer: Daniel Paquet
Next Deadline: May 2023 (Details coming soon!)
Neutral Ground has two exhibition spaces, in our Main and Window Galleries. Work is selected for exhibition through an open call for proposals circulated annually for the Window Gallery, and every two years for the Main Gallery. Proposals are reviewed in a consensus-based decision framework by a jury comprised of the Programming Director, and members of Neutral Ground’s diverse community of artists and creatives.
Neutral Ground aims to program experimental, visionary, and inspiring work from emerging and mid-career artists, and from underrepresented established artists experimenting with or working outside of their normal practices. We also accept curatorial proposals.
Neutral Ground will consider projects to be realized in all formats including, but not limited to, exhibitions, installations, performances, site-specific projects, screenings, and lectures. Work that has been previously shown in Regina will not be eligible for consideration. Artists are limited to one solo exhibition in any four-year period.
Selections are made based on the quality of the submission from the artist(s) or curator(s), the relevance of the proposal to the programming objectives, the feasibility of realizing the project within available resources, the mandate of the gallery, and community interests.
Neutral Ground recognizes that many people face systemic forms of oppression due to intersecting imbalances of power. Neutral Ground values lived experiences and non-western ways of knowing and being as powerful sources of knowledge. The organization addresses imbalances through the representation of diverse identities within its programming. Neutral Ground is committed to promoting, exhibiting, and presenting the work of systemically underrepresented artists inclusive of race, religion, national or ethnic origin, colour, education, gender, age or physical or mental disability, or any intersections of and beyond these identities.
The gallery is equipt with adjustable clip lights and gallery-quality LED bulbs.

Exhibiting artists have priority access to all of Neutral Ground’s available audio-visual equipment. We have a range of projectors, media players, video monitors and speakers available. Please enquire with staff for more information and a list of available equipment.
Gallery Infrastructure & Support:
The gallery has a modest selection of plinths, shelves and other support systems (projection screens etc.) Whenever possible, artists are expected to install their own work. Neutral Ground provides basic tools, paint and other materials for installation. Programming staff can provide assistance with basic installation needs for exhibiting artists. For more complex installations, an external preparator or carpenter can be brought in, pending available resources.
Artists should be aware of available resources when proposing more ambitious installations and interventions in the space. Reach out to programming staff in advance for more information about the feasibility of your proposal.
