apexart Unsolicited Proposal open call

Now in its 16th year, apexart’s Unsolicited Proposal open call will accept submissions for exhibition ideas starting January 15th. Three winners will receive the funding and administrative support from apexart to mount a show in its Manhattan space.

The Unsolicited Proposal Program asks for 500-word idea-based proposals for group shows that examine an idea or theme. Exhibitions can be about anything that the organizer finds compelling—successful shows have been mounted about everything from television to mapping to literature. No prior curatorial experience is required and we invite submissions from people of all backgrounds. Proposals are evaluated by an international jury of more than 100 people in multiple disciplines and the three winners receive funding and administrative support to mount their exhibition at apexart Manhattan.

The three winning exhibitions will be presented in apexart’s 2013–2014 season.

Proposals are accepted online at www.apexart.org/unsolicited from January 15–February 15, 2013
