Open Call for Group Exhibitions by Apexart (New York)
Anyone from anywhere is encouraged to enter and no prior curatorial experience is necessary. Curatorial teams are eligible and encouraged to submit. All participating organizers must be listed by name on the application. Proposals from collectives are welcome, but note that the “organized by” credit line will be either a list of the individuals’ names or the collective name, not both.
500-word proposals should describe a modest, focused, idea-driven, and original group exhibition.
Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level, background, or location can apply.
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.
No topics are off limits, no ideas are too controversial.
Deadline: 31 October 2017 (opens from 1 October)
