About Exhibition Selection:

Exhibitions are curated by GOCA Director & Chief Curator Daisy McGowan. Currently GOCA exhibits are planned three years in advance - space is limited and programming is evaluated as it relates to GOCA's mission. The curatorial process involves extensive outreach, including studio visits with an effort to connect with local, regional, national and international artists and art collectives from diverse backgrounds.

Program review is conducted by ad hoc committees including (but not limited to) university faculty, curators, administrators, artists and students (invited by the GOCA Director). The committee advises on GOCA exhibitions and programs and offers input on relevance to both the university and the regional and greater art worlds, depth of scholarship, and diversity of programs.
