How can I exhibit in the Atrium Gallery?

 Find out more about exhibiting at LSE's Atrium Gallery


The Atrium Gallery provides a space for exhibiting a range of creative work, especially the work of our students and staff.

We aim to promote a programme of high quality art exhibitions which reflect creative activity and research interests.

We select exhibitions by proposal submission. Selected exhibitions showcase innovative, ambitious new work that contributes to the School’s learning and research activities, and is a source of pleasure and inspiration to students, staff, visitors and the wider LSE community.

The gallery space is not for external hire.

Proposals to exhibit

You must be a student or member of staff at LSE at the time of the proposed exhibition. LSE Arts has no dedicated source of funding,  therefore we will ordinarily expect proposals to come with a minimum level of funding, to cover core exhibition costs outlined in the 'Guidelines for organising exhibitions at LSE' which can be accessed here.

Proposals will be judged termly for exhibition the following academic term. 
There is a high demand for our gallery space so please list your first choice of dates and any alternate dates that would also work.
