Exhibiting with RAMM
RAMM receives a great many proposals, from across the UK and overseas and each one is considered for discussion by the team. This process takes time and means we are not able to accommodate every exhibition idea.
Background to programming
RAMM’s exhibition programme is committed two years or more in advance. As a public museum and art gallery our temporary exhibitions cover all disciplines, including antiquities, art, natural sciences and world cultures. RAMM also has a commitment to present changing displays of the museum’s collection of over one million objects. Some exhibitions have been in planning for several years, often in partnership with many other organisations.
RAMM’s exhibition programme is now complete for this year and next. If you have a proposal for the future, please email Anne Starkey (Exhibitions Officer). Proposals will be assessed based on the following criteria:
- Does the theme fit with the current RAMM themes of ‘Untold Stories’, ‘Health and Wellbeing’, ‘Environment’ and ‘Sense of Place’?
- Does the proposal highlight the natural or cultural history of Exeter, Devon or the South West?
- Does the content relate to RAMM’s collection in some way?
Please try to keep proposals to 400 words or less and include the following information:
- Project / exhibition title
- Content outline of the exhibition, anticipated audience and any ideas for learning/event opportunities.
- An idea of why audiences would be interested in seeing the exhibition.
- Please enclose no more than 10 images. These should be emailed or sent via WeTransfer.
- Indicate the approximate size of your exhibition (linear metres / feet, or approximate floor area) including space for interpretive material.
- Indicate how many items or works you are proposing to exhibit, an indication of the average size of each work and whether you require display cases for any material.
- Dates (if touring – available dates, bearing in mind our existing commitments are up to two years ahead).
- Project funding sources and costs (including details of funding applications) and any partners involved in the project.
Contemporary Art Proposals
Our Contemporary Art Curator is currently working with several artists who have either been commissioned by RAMM or invited to exhibit in forthcoming Contemporary Art shows. Unfortunately, this means we are not able to consider proposals from individual artists or artist groups at this time.
