Activity Expenses

Exhibition expenses such as arrangement, maintenance, event, promotion, design, and cocktail, are covered by Galeria Qahili.

How does the selection work?


Projects are selected by the jury. Part of the jury are artists, curators as well as team of GQ. Projects are judged by the strength of the exhibition idea and the organizer’s ability to communicate it, not by social connections, past accomplishments, or personality.


Jurors have three weeks to decide after the submission deadline. We announce the winners in the beginning of June 2022. 

Regarding the budget

Applications can be submitted in 3 categories depending on the project: 

  • Category 1 – For exhibitions, solo or group shows 
  • Category 2 – Students – Senior BA Students, Master Students
  • Category 3 – Community engagement activities 

Please contact us for the detailed pricing. 


If your submission is accepted, the curator/artist or manager is responsible for the shipping to/from the space for all work in the show. 

Installation of the artwork will take place the week prior to the exhibition. There will be a coordinator onsite during installation.

Once the activity is finished, the artworks or other equipment need to be collected within 7 days, otherwise they will be part of Galeria Qahili. 


Damage to artwork or framing is not the responsibility or liability of the gallery. We care about your artwork but cannot accept liability.

Gallery commission

Galeria Qahili retains the right to represent an artist in a sale of the artwork that was accepted and exhibited for the duration of the exhibition.

The gallery takes a 30% commission on all sales made or promised during the exhibition.

Accepted entries are represented by Galeria Qahili for the duration of the exhibition, and artworks will be promoted on our website and other social media.
