Founded in 2016, the Assembly is an artist run co-op operating in downtown Hamilton. It is organized by a collective of professional artists that present their work on a regular basis, showcasing a diverse and vibrant range of contemporary art. The Assembly is dedicated to presenting challenging contemporary art in Hamilton that contributes to larger dialogues in contemporary art today. Becoming a member of the Assembly gives individuals and collectives the opportunity to have a solo exhibition during the 18-month term while participating in the Hamilton art scene. The Assembly is currently accepting applications to fill four membership spots. Members receive 1 solo exhibition and 3 curated group shows (exhibitions are monthly), presentation and promotion online, and full administrative support. Membership also includes gallery participation on committees, events, gallery sitting, and general operations. Membership is $ 65 per month, paid quarterly, from May 2018 to November 2019.
Through the generous support of an anonymous sponsor, the gallery is pleased to provide a fully subsidized membership. To be consider for this opportunity, please indicate your request for consideration in your interest letter. Preference is given to the BIPOC community.
