apexart's Unsolicited Proposal Program is an opportunity for anyone, from anywhere, to submit a proposal for an idea-based exhibition at apexart. From October 1 - November 1, 2014, we will accept 500-word group exhibition proposals. Three winning proposals will be presented at apexart in New York City as part of our 2015-16 season. Proposals are only accepted online for anonymous consideration by an international group of more than 100 individuals composed of artists, curators, writers, arts professionals, and individuals from other fields.
Our unique system of crowd-sourced jurying asks each juror to read at least 50 proposals, in randomized order. Each proposal receives as many as 25 votes. We believe it is the most objective and fair process of evaluation that we have found. Submissions are reviewed anonymously and solely on the strength of their idea and previous curatorial experience is in no way required. Supplemental materials are not accepted to further level the "playing field."
Three proposals with the highest ratings will be presented the following season at apexart in NYC, and the full tally of results (where your proposal ranked) will be available online to all submitters. We appreciate your interest in our programs.
Applications are welcomed and encouraged from around the world.
