Whether it’s trying out a project on a smaller scale before making it BIG or staging your first solo or group exhibition, Arts SU has four FREE Exhibition and Project Spaces for you to use in whichever way most benefits you and your work.

The spaces are at Chelsea College of Arts, London College of Fashion (High Holborn), Central Saint Martins and London College of Communication.

The exhibition slots run for 11 days - Tuesday to the following Friday (inclusive of the weekend). This is inclusive of installation and de-installation.

When and how to apply

Term 1 applications for academic year 2018-19 are now open. To apply please complete the SU Exhibition & Project Space application form by clicking on the 'apply now' link below:

Applications are now closed for Term 1 - these may re-open again in the coming weeks.

You will be asked to attach images of your proposal and a signed copy of our SU Exhibition & Project Space Terms & Conditions (.pdf/.doc

Your application will be reviewed by a selection panel made up of an Arts SU Sabbatical Officer, an Arts SU College Coordinator, the Arts SU Events and Exhibitions Coordinator and where possible a staff member from Made in Arts London.

The panel makes selections in order to showcase a representative mix of creative disciplines, levels of study and colleges attended, rather than to make critical judgements about the work submitted.

Floor Plans and Images

We are working to procure a good set of stock dry photos of the spaces - for now we have linked to images of previous student exhibitions in the spaces to enable you to gather an idea of the look and feel of the location.
