The Beldam Gallery shows a diverse programme of temporary exhibitions showing a wide range of contemporary art and craft including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, installation, live art, performance, film, video and sound art. This programme includes the work of regional, national and international artists, as well as a dedicated emerging artist showcase occurring annually.
The gallery is part of the university's Arts Centre and is now in its new location in the Eastern Gateway Building at the campus entrance on Kingston Lane. Originally located in the Wilfred Brown Building, it is named after Dr Robert Beldam CBE, a great benefactor of Brunel from its earliest days, who facilitated the opening of a new gallery in 1997.
The Beldam Gallery is open to all: members of the public, casual visitors and the university community, which currently comprises over 16,000 students from over 120 countries, and around 3,000 members of staff.

Current Opportunity: Call to Artists - Reveal 2013
What: An exhibition opportunity
Who: Visual artists in Hillingdon
Where: The Beldam Gallery, Brunel University
When: June to August 2013
Application Deadline: Monday 15 April 2013
Regional artists are invited to take place in a special exhibition at the Beldam Gallery in summer 2013.
This professional exhibition opportunity will shine a spotlight on the talent of visual artists in the London Borough of Hillingdon, providing an insight into a broad range of contemporary art practice by showcasing the work of a diverse selection of artists. The project will provide exposure for practitioners and reveal their work to new audiences.
Artists can apply to take part by submitting a proposal to the University Curator, describing their practice and detailing the work that they would like to exhibit. Selected artists will benefit from a one to one session with the curator, to discuss and explore their work in detail and agree together which exhibits will form part of the display. Proposals will be accepted from collaborative artists or individuals and submitted works may take the form of drawing, painting, video, sound, photography, craft, digital media, ceramics, installation or sculpture. Artists living or working in Hillingdon, or that have a strong connection with the borough, are invited to apply. You will need to detail your connection in your application.
This is a competitive process and all proposals will be viewed by Brunel University’s Curator. Work will be selected on the basis of quality and of suitability to the venue. Artists are encouraged to be ambitious and present their work to the highest standards. There is no theme for this opportunity and your application should genuinely reflect your own practice and interests.
No exhibition fee will be paid to the artists: however a small materials budget is available for selected artists. The Beldam Gallery is not a commercial space, but does have a history of sales. If your work is for sale then please note this in your proposal. The Beldam Gallery charges a 20% commission rate on all sales.
To submit your proposal, please send the following information to George Mogg, University Curator, Brunel University, Kingston Lane, Uxbridge UB8 3PH:
· A statement about your practice
· A CV or other information about previous projects and experience
· An exhibition proposal detailing the work you wish to show and why
· Documentation of past and current work: up to 15 images on a CD / up to 15 images hard copy/ up to 10 minutes of footage on DVD or video or up to 10 minutes of sound work on CD
You will need to detail the installation requirements for your work in your proposal. Your work will be installed by the curator and colleagues from the Arts Centre. If your work needs to be installed by you personally, you will need to explain how you will undertake this, what equipment will be needed and any health and safety considerations necessary. If selected, a full risk assessment will need to be carried out in consultation with the Arts Centre Resources Manager and your work may need to be adapted in response to this. All work will need to be delivered to the Beldam Gallery at an agreed time on or before Tuesday 28 May 2013, and collected when the exhibition concludes at the end of August, exact dates to be confirmed. You will need to be able to make your own arrangements for delivery and collection of any work in the exhibition. (Work cannot be stored after the collection date.) Proposals can only be returned if a stamped addressed envelope is provided. Please do not send original work.
Technical information: The Beldam Gallery is unattended when open. Video, sound or digital media should be supplied on a continuous loop. Manual operation of equipment will be subject to Arts Centre staff availability. If the use of electronic timers and sensors for electrical equipment is a possibility, you should consider this.
If your work will require electrical equipment, please list what will be needed, and whether it will be provided by yourself or the gallery. All electrical equipment brought on site will be PAT tested in situ by the University’s contractors.
Should you wish to discuss your submission or submit your proposal in an alternative format, please contact George Mogg on email@example.com
