Our exhibitions are programmed in house and are scheduled at least one year in advance. We focus primarily on solo exhibitions of artists based in Britain and internationally, or work with guest curators on group shows and often show  displays from collections and archives revealing hidden histories alongside contemporary work. The selection of artists is undertaken by the programme team, led by the Artistic Director.The Tetley often works in partnership with other organisations in Britain and abroad, with current collaborations with Karachi Biennale, Pakistan, Colombo Art Biennale, Sri Lanka and Liverpool Biennial through the New North and South partnership. As exhibitions arise from direct invitations and through partnerships, we do not accept unsolicited proposals for exhibitions and do not hire out spaces for exhibitions.
