On October 1, NYC’s apexart will accept submissions for their Unsolicited Proposal Program, a call for exhibition proposals from anyone, anywhere. No prior curatorial experience necessary.

Now in its 18th year, apexart’s Unsolicited Proposal Program uses a democratic process to determine the upcoming exhibition season:

  • Submit a proposal for an idea-driven, group exhibition.
  • Submissions consist of up to 500 words of text, no images or links accepted.
  • Exhibition proposals will be accepted from October 1 – November 1, 2014.
  • apexart will assemble an international jury of over 100 creative professionals who will vote on each submission online.
  • apexart’s custom-made computer script analyzes the votes and determines which three proposals received the highest scores.
  • Those three winners will receive financial and administrative support to mount their exhibition in apexart’s Manhattan space.

To submit an exhibition proposal, visit apexart.org/unsolicited starting on October 1.
