Call for Submissions Apexarts’ Open Call for Exhibitions

ApexartNew York, New York, United States

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: October 31, 2020 – 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. We realize this mission through exhibitions, an international residency, a book publishing initiative, and public programs and events.

OPEN CALL FOR EXHIBITIONS
apexart’s Open Calls present an opportunity for artists, curators, and other professionals to turn their idea into an apexart Exhibition.

Open Call periods happen twice annually: in October, we invite proposals for our NYC space, and in February, we invite proposals for anywhere in the world, except for NYC. Winning proposals become part of apexart’s Exhibition Season and receive production funding and significant production support. This is not a grant, but rather an opportunity to curate/organize an apexart exhibition.

ELIGIBILITY
Open to creative people who have interesting exhibition ideas. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level, background, or location can apply.

BUDGET
apexart has a $10,000 budget for each exhibition and its related programming. The intention is to produce a small focused exhibition with community relevance. Each organizer must work within apexart’s budget to cover expenses including curator travel, artwork shipping, artist and public program participant honorariums, assistant fees, equipment, construction materials, photo/media documentation (smartphone images ok) for exhibitions outside NYC, wire transfer fees, and installation with $8,000 of the budget. 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.

Please note, if more than one organizer is listed on the original proposal, the organizer honorarium is divided equally between everyone listed. For international exhibitions apexart will match up to $1,000 for a location rental if necessary.

APPLY ONLINE – No Application Fee

SELECTION PROCESS
A diverse and changing international jury of more than 500 people in 70 countries participate in a crowdsourced voting process. After the last vote is cast, the three highest-ranked proposals are marked to be included in the upcoming apexart exhibition season.
