apexart is accepting proposals for its Unsolicited Exhibition Program (UEP) beginning October 1. Winning proposals will be presented at apexart’s New York City space as part of next season’s exhibition program. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level or location, are invited to submit ideas online from October 1 – 31, 2016.
- The Submission Process:
Proposals should describe focused, idea-driven, and original group exhibitions. They cannot exceed 500 words and must be written in English. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images should be included within the application – just describe the exhibition you want to create and why. Projects are judged by the strength of their ideas and the organizer’s ability to communicate, rather than by familiar names or past accomplishments.
- The Selection Process:
An international jury, composed of more than 150 individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds, rates the proposals. Submissions are rated online, where their order is randomized and submitter information is removed. Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, we use a system of crowd-sourcing wherein many jurors each review a subset of proposals. Our exhibition season is intended to be merit-based and compelling to both our established followers as well as to a wider audience with diverse interests, and our jury composition assures this. apexart does not influence the results of the jury. The organizers of the three highest-ranked proposals receive funding for the proposed exhibition as well as an honorarium, and work closely with the apexart team to turn their idea into an apexart exhibition.
To submit an exhibition proposal, visit apexart.org/unsolicited before October 31.
