apexart has been making people think for more than 20 years with innovative and democratic approaches to programming.
apexart Open Call exhibitions are selected from hundreds of anonymous proposals by an international jury of more than 200 people. Professional connections and experience do not matter, only the quality of the idea does. When an exhibition proposal is selected for apexart’s program season, it means that its ideas are uniquely compelling, and that over 200 people want to see it transform from a proposal into an exhibition.
apexart Open Call exhibitions feature works about everything, from anywhere, by anyone, and they take place all around the world. In March 2018, apexart travels to Bali, Indonesia for Dipping in the Kool Aid, which showcases the creative collaborations between artists and prisoners in Indonesian jails. Last year, apexart presented exhibitions in Tbilisi, Georgia, where it probed the legacy of Soviet Cosmonautics in Illegal Kosmonavtika, and Fordlândia, Brazil, where Transmissão Fordlândia presented sound installations and radio workshops that mined the sounds and histories of the Amazon.
Currently in New York City, Rendered Cities considers the impact of digital architectural renderings on urban landscapes and the human psyche. Last year, Fellow Travelers explored the intersections of science fiction and migration narratives, and Promises to Keep presented performance art by women Pakistani artists.
The three highest-ranked proposals of each Open Call receive individual exhibition and programming budgets of $10,000, and organizers each receive a $2,000 honorarium for coordinating the project and writing the exhibition essay.
Proposals for exhibitions happening anywhere in the world, except NYC, will be accepted from February 1 – March 1, 2018. To learn more about how to submit your 500-word exhibition proposal, visit apexart.org/opencalls.php.
