THE SELECTION PROCESS

  • apexart assembles an international jury of 150 individuals from all backgrounds.
  • Jurors vote online and can only see the text of the proposal; curator names and any biographical information or links are removed.
  • apexart’s custom-made crowdsourcing PHP script ensures that each proposal is read the same number of times, though by different jurors and in a different order.
  • Jurors’ evaluations are compiled, determining the 4 proposals with the highest scores, which then receive a budget and administrative support from apexart to mount their show.
PHILOSOPHY

  • The Louvre franchised, the Guggenheim franchised, and MoMA franchised. apexart franchised by presenting exhibitions in hair salons in Tanzania, rooftops in Peru, train stations in Jordan, construction sites in Mexico, and laundromats in Sweden. Bringing month-long exhibitions to locations around the world, the focus is on the local culture and new experiences for curators, artists, and audiences.
  • apexart built upon this idea in order to illustrate that the center of the world is wherever you are.
