*apexart NYC Open Call 2020-21 <https://www.apexart.org/opencalls.html>*


Accepting proposals: Oct 1 - Oct 31, 2019, 11:59PM EST



*apexartis accepting exhibition proposals for its NYC Open Call from 
October 1-31, 2019. Three winning proposals will become apexart 
exhibitions presented at apexart’s NYC space as part of its 2020-21 
exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, 
regardless of experience level or location, are invited to submit a 
proposal online.*


The submission processProposals should describe focused, idea-driven, 
original group exhibitions. No biographical information, CVs, links, or 
images will be accepted. Submissions cannot exceed 500 words and must be 
submitted in English. Jurors rate proposals based on their content and 
the organizer’s ability to communicate, rather than by familiar names or 
past accomplishments. See examples at 

The selection processRather than convene a small panel to review 
hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowd-sourced voting system allows hundreds 
of jurors to individually review proposals. An international jury 
composed of 300+ individuals from a wide variety of professional 
backgrounds—including students at over 10 international 
universities—will jury the proposals. Proposals are anonymous and 
randomized to make sure each submission receives the same consideration. 
apexartstaff does not influence the results of the jury in any way.

The resultsThe three winning proposals will each receive an exhibition 
budget of $10,000 staff support, and be part of apexart’s 2020-2021 
exhibition season. Working closely with the apexartteam, curators will 
realize their original ideas into apexart exhibitions. Exhibition 
curators are expected, encouraged and challenged to work within the 
funding provided to transform their winning proposals into small, 
focused, noteworthy exhibitions.

To submit an exhibition proposal, 
October 1-31, 2019. *
