Stills has a gallery space in which it presents four exhibitions a year. The research and development towards our exhibition programme is delivered by a specialist team of staff up to three years in advance of each project.

We receive numerous requests for feedback on work and proposals for exhibitions at Stills but, due to limitations on staff time, we are only able to respond if we are interested in requesting more information.

If you would like to make us aware of your work or an exhibition proposal, please email to: ben.harman@stills.org We recognize that this is an important way for us to learn about work that we may not be aware of.
