Opportunity Description

International Deadline: October 31, 2107 – apexart is a non-profit arts organization in Lower Manhattan that was conceived to offer opportunities to independent curators and emerging and established artists, as well as to challenge ideas about art, its practice and curation.

OPEN CALL FOR GROUP EXHIBITIONS

ELIGIBILITY
Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level, background, or location can apply. No topics are off limits, no ideas are too controversial. Proposal is a group exhibition, consisting of works by at least 3 people.

BUDGET
apexart has a $10,000 budget for each exhibition and its related programming. Each organizer works within apexart’s budget to cover expenses including curator travel, art work shipping, artist and public program participant honorariums, equipment, and installation. After the exhibition closes and all expenses have been paid, the organizer receives a $2,000 honorarium for coordinating the project and writing the exhibition brochure essay.

apexart covers costs for approved insurance, advertising, publicity, documentation, the design, printing, and mailing of the brochure, as well as the opening reception. apexart oversees and handles most of the exhibition logistics, including loan agreements, shipping, and installation. The apexart team works closely with guest organizers to turn their ideas into apexart exhibitions.

DATES
Proposals for exhibitions in apexart’s NYC space are accepted October 1-31, 2017 for program season 2018-19. See Floorplan.

Proposals for exhibitions outside NYC are accepted February 1-28, 2018 for program season 2018-19. For exhibitions outside NYC, you must select a city you have been to before.

SELECTION PROCESS
apexart exhibitions attempt to decentralize the selection process by making it as democratic and meritocratic as possible.

A diverse and changing jury of 200 people from around the world participates in a crowd sourced voting process. Projects are judged by the strength of the exhibition idea and the organizer’s ability to communicate it, not by connections, past accomplishments, or personality.

APPLY ONLINE BETWEEN OCTOBER 1-31, 2017
500-word proposals should describe a modest, focused, idea-driven, and original group exhibition.

RESULTS
After the last vote is cast, the three highest-ranked proposals are marked to be included in the upcoming apexart exhibition season.
