NYC OPEN CALL FOR GROUP EXHIBITIONS AT APEXART
apexart is accepting proposals for its NYC Open Call from October 1-31, 2023. Five winning proposals will become exhibitions presented at apexart as part of the 2024–25 exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of location or past experience, are invited to submit a proposal.
The submission process
Proposals of up to 500 words should describe focused, idea-driven, original group exhibitions. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images will be accepted, and proposals must be submitted in English. Jurors rate anonymous submissions based on the idea only.
The selection process
Rather than convene a 5-person NYC panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowd-sourced voting system invites hundreds of international jurors to review proposals on their own schedule. The crowd-sourced jury is composed of more than 600 individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds and international locations—including students from 20 participating university classes—who will rate the proposals. Proposals are anonymous and randomized to make sure each submission receives the same consideration. apexart staff does not influence the results of the jury in any way.
The five winning proposals will each receive an exhibition budget of up to 10,000 USD; have an exhibition brochure printed and mailed to over six thousand international recipients; and will be part of apexart’s 2024-2025 exhibition season. Working closely with the apexart team, curators will realize their original ideas into apexart exhibitions.
