Based in New York and operating a gallery in the city, apexart offers opportunities to curators and emerging and established artists while aiming to challenge set ideas about culture, art, exhibitions, and curation.
The organisation have now launched an open call for artists, curators, and other professionals who want to turn their idea into an apexart exhibition. Proposals are invited from anywhere in the world, except for New York City itself. Winning proposals will become part of apexart’s 2020-21 Exhibition Season and receive production funding and significant production support.
No topics are off limits for the exhibition. However, it is not intended to be used to mount a solo show or to create an ‘artist project’ experienced as a single work or installation.
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 organiser must work within apexart’s budget to cover expenses including curator travel, artwork shipping, artist and public programme 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.
