apexart’s International Open Call is accepting exhibition proposals from February 1 to March 1, 2019. The four proposals with the highest scores will be presented by apexart in the curators/organizer’s countries of choice as part of apexart’s 2019–20 exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level, discipline, or location, are invited to submit a proposal online for any location in the world outside of New York City and its metropolitan area. (See NYC 2019–2020 Open Call winners and proposals)
The Submission Process
Proposals should describe modest, focused, idea-driven, original group exhibitions. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images will be accepted. Submissions cannot exceed 500 words and should be submitted in English.
The Selection Process
Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowdsourced voting system utilizes many jurors who individually review a small subset of proposals. An international jury composed of 300+ individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds rate the proposals based on their interest, content, and the organizers’ ability to communicate their ideas. To make the system as fair as possible, proposals are anonymous and randomized for each juror, which ensures that each submission receives the same consideration. apexart does not influence the decisions of the jury in any way.
The organizers/curators of the four highest-ranked proposals will each receive an exhibition budget of up to USD 11,000 (all inclusive) and work closely with the apexart team to turn their ideas into apexart exhibitions. Exhibition organizers are expected and challenged to work within the funding provided to transform their winning proposals into strong, focused, noteworthy, and relevant exhibitions.
