apexart International Open Call 2020-21

Accepting proposals: February 1 - March 1, 2020

apexart will accept proposals for its International Open Call from February 1 - March 1, 2020. Four winning proposals will become apexart exhibitions presented in selected locations around the world as part of its 2020-21 exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of location, or past experience are invited to submit a proposal online.

The submission process
Proposals of up to 500 words should describe focused, idea-driven, original group exhibitions, and the country and city in which they are to take place. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images will be accepted and submissions must be submitted in English. Jurors rate anonymous proposals based on the idea only. See examples of winning proposals here.

The selection process
Rather than convene a small local panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowd-sourced voting system allows hundreds of international jurors to review proposals on their own schedule. An crowd-sourced jury composed of more than 350 individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds—as well as many participating university classes—will jury the proposals. Proposals are anonymous and randomized to make sure each submission receives the same consideration. apexart staff do not influence the results of the jury in any way.

The results
The four winning proposals will each receive an exhibition budget of up to $11,000; have an exhibition brochure printed and mailed to over seven thousand international recipients; advertising in major and local outlets; and will be part of apexart’s 2020-2021 exhibition season. Working closely with the apexart team, curators will realize their original ideas into apexart exhibitions. Exhibition curators are challenged, encouraged, and required to work within the funding provided to transform their winning proposals into small, focused, noteworthy exhibitions.

To submit an exhibition proposal, visit apexart.org/opencalls.html between February 1 and March 1, 2020.
