Submissions Open for Unsolicited Exhibition Proposals NYC

Unsolicited Proposal Program

Submissions open: October 131, 2015

291 Church Street
New York, NY 10013


We’ve known about apexart for several years now, and so when we received this opportunity in an email we thought it would be great to share with artists in case they may have missed it—

apexart has developed an Unsolicited Proposal Program, which is a democratic method of selecting exhibitions based on the strength of the idea alone. No CVs, references, or biographical materials are accepted– just 500 words on your brilliant idea for an exhibition in New York. They’ve been doing this for 18 years now!

This year, from October 131, apexart will accept proposals for exhibition ideas. Applications consist of a short written text explaining what the exhibition would be about and why it is of interest.

apexart assembles a jury of 150 people from all different backgrounds, all around the world, who vote on proposals online. This is to make sure that the shows have a broad audience and appeal across cultural borders. The only information jurors can see is the application text; they do not know who submitted the idea and nothing about their background or level of experience. Each proposal is voted on the same number of times by different jurors over the course of a month. apexart developed a custom-made computer script that aggregates all the votes and determines which three proposals have the highest scores. These proposals will be presented as part of apexart’s exhibition season in 2016–17.

Winners receive a budget, curatorial honorarium, and administrative support to mount their exhibitions in the apexart in Manhattan.

You need: a great idea for an exhibition that includes the work of at least 3 artists.
You don’t need: previous curatorial experience, connections at apexart or other organizations, bribes, or a home address in New York City.

More information about guidelines and how to apply here.

The Multiple eXposure Project Call for Artists: Outside the White Cube


Dear Marie,

I hope you can publish this call for artists to our curatorial project, Outside the White Cube, in your website. Thank you.


Sherwin Mapanoo (curator)

The Multiple eXposure Project


Call for Artists: Outside the White Cube

The Multiple eXposure Project will be curating “Outside the White Cube”, an alternative, traveling, curatorial project which aims to feature image-based works across different disciplines and media by emerging artists from the Philippines and elsewhere. We are inviting local and international artists whose works discuss the notion of the “PUBLIC” and its complexities. Deadline of submission is on October 5, 2015.

Artists working in a variety of media and disciplines are invited to participate and submit their works. We are seeking image submissions such as photographic series, video arts, short films, video mapping, recorded public performances, digital manipulation, animation, digital arts, new media arts, and others. Needless to say, any medium that can be projected to the screen will be accepted.

Please email your submissions, together with description, artist statement, and bionote, to themultipleexposureproject@gmail.com.

For more information, website our website: http://www.themultipleexposureproject.co.nr or our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/themultipleexposureproject.

About the Theme (Public):

The “public” is a multi-layered concept defined differently depending on how the term is used and framed. It is a notion devoid of singularity and is, grammatically speaking, a terrain of contradictions. As a noun and an adjective, the public constitutes the people, masses or community, and suggests anything that is staged, accessed, or seen out in the “open.” The public can also be used as a verb to describe something one does, as in make public or publicize, suggesting the movement or shift from the inside (private) to the outside (public). Paradoxically, however, the same term also points to the limits of such openness and movement. Given that it simultaneously refers to something “involving and provided by the government”, the public is always at risk of becoming merely an apparatus of the sovereign state and its institutions, thus making the flow of its production, distribution, and consumption partial and counterproductive.

With these issues in mind, we are looking for submissions that address and interrogate key topics of interest, but are not limited to, the following:

–         What is public? What counts as public?
–         The public and the private  – their overlapping tensions and ambiguities (ex: private event, object, or space made public)
–         The public as a collective (subject, citizenship, nation, etc.)
–         Politics, institutions, and conflicts (of interests) in public sphere
–         Positioning the public in the city or urban context
–         The value of public-ness (openness, sharing, connection, participation, etc.)
–         The limits and potentials of the public
–         The public and the subaltern counterpublic
–         Public image and identity
–         Public performance, gaze, visual voyeurism, and spectacle
–         Public and biopolitics (power, discipline, panopticon, and surveillance)


As implied by the project’s title, “Outside the White Cube” seeks to re-frame the practice of curating and spectating images outside the exclusionary, institutional borders of the “white cube” or gallery space.

Public spaces are used as an exhibition site to stimulate a mode of spectator experience that revolves around displacement of the passersby (public) from their “habitus” by interrupting the flow of pedestrian traffic. We alter a familiar public space and transform it into an unusual, dialogic site for image projection and exhibition, taking advantage of its accessibility and site-specificity in order to redefine the ways the spectators look at and engage with images.  Adopting “guerilla urbanism” as a curatorial strategy, we make sense of the immediacy of the “public” and reflect upon its context, meanings, and intersections with representation, place, and discourse. In so doing, we intervene and reformat aspects of the urban landscapes and emphasize the “counter-spectacle” in art viewing and appreciation.

This project also underlines the inherent ephemerality of an open-to-the-public display in relation to time and space. As a “traveling” exhibition which heavily depends on projection technology and public space as its “frame” or “canvas”, this project celebrates the momentary nature of image-viewing, consumption, and mobility in the metropolis at a time of constant flux and transition.

Sites and Duration:

Selected works will be projected and displayed in public spaces in different parts of Metro Manila where there is a massive flow of human traffic. Possible sites defined by law as “public place” include: “any highway, boulevard, avenue, road, street, bridge or other thoroughfare, park, plaza, square, and/or any open space of public ownership where the people are allowed access.” Each exhibition will run anywhere from a few hours to a week. The first phase of the traveling exhibition will run from October to December 2015. An accompanying zine featuring the works of the artists will also be published.

About The Multiple eXposure Project:

The Multiple eXposure Project is a multimedia, multi/trans/inter-disciplinary artistic practice and research-based initiative that explores the many layers of image-making, participatory photography, visual ethnography, and performative encounter(s) between the image and the spectator; the subject and the viewer.


Open Call to All Artists on “Art as Activism” Theme for Chelsea NY Gallery


Hi Artists,

Listed below are two calls for art. The first is from Gutfreund Cornett Art on Democracy and is open to all artists as this is an “art as activism” theme. The second call for art is from the Women’s Caucus for Art and is titled “Trending: Contemporary Art Now!” This show is open to self-identified women artists. Let’s change the world through powerful art! Please contact me with any questions at karengutfreundart@gmail.com and as always, I hope you don’t consider my email notifications “spam”. But we will remove you from our list if you’d prefer not to hear from us.

If you haven’t worked with GCA or WCA before – below is an example of our work. It is the mission of GCA to change the world with art as activism and the mission of WCA to promote women artists who are underrepresented in the art world.

Below are links to the online catalog and gallery for an upcoming show at AIR Gallery, titled “Who’s Afraid of Feminism” from the Women’s Caucus for Art. Enjoy!

In the upcoming election year, what does democracy mean in the United States? It’s time for artists to get on their soap boxes – whether it is a conceptual soapbox (Warhol) or direct Statement Art (Jenny Holtzer) and tell us what you think about democracy in America.

What is happening within our borders with the increasing polarization of our political parties and how do our views of democracy affect those outside our borders when we try to spread the American Dream? Have we made progress or are we going backwards? Whether you lean to the right or lean to the left, tell us what you think about the current state of affairs. How does increasing surveillance affect the tenets of democracy? We have both freedom and a lack of privacy in this digital and Patriot’s Act world as drones and wiretaps are commonplace and virtually unquestioned and unopposed; but do we have a voice in any of this Big Brother culture and with voting restriction laws being passed across the country to silence particular demographics of the American public. How does the media portray democracy — truth vs. spin? What is actually news versus entertainment in bombastic, biased editorials? Consider democracy in relation to civil, personal and political rights, economic gain, and the debate over freedom of speech, freedom of choice and freedom to choose to live as you wish. What did our forefathers intend in the Constitution with the freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, the pursuit of happiness, etc. To whom do these tenets apply in a racially, religious and politically divided country?

GCA is asking artists to share their voices in this art-based conversation about democracy and seeks art that address and interprets these broadly.

African Print Services: A New Sales Opportunity for African Artists

I  invite you to take part in a new joint initiative with the newly launched EN1 Prints of London, England. EN1 Prints are a brand new print-on-demand service offering and very good deals to contemporary artists ready and willing to sell limited edition prints of their original work.

 I have negotiated a special deal with EN1 for Artworld’s African Fine Artists that will market fine-art prints (A1, A2 or A3 sized) from your original work. (Initially the agreement is for African artists, perhaps later this will be extended worldwide). The bare bones of the arrangement are as follows.
 (i) There are no fees or charges up-front. You pay nothing, now or ever for the print-service.
 (ii) If a print is sold, the printer get 20% of the selling-price, APS gets 5% (ploughed back into the Artworld service) and you, the artist, get 75%. Payment will be made within 7 days from the sale, less any bank & currency conversion charges.
 (iii) You are free to set your own prices for prints offered from your original work. I recommend an edition of 100, and (in consultation with EN1 Prints) a selling price of USD 75. For each print sold you will receive about USD 56 (75%) less bank costs, EN1 Prints gets about USD 15 (to cover the service, materials and printing) and APS gets USD 4 (or 5%).
 I URGE YOU TO TAKE PART UNDER THE RECOMMENDED TERMS! To do so just reply to this email with the single word YES. I will then contact you with further information (I will need a print quality digital master for each print sold through EN1 Prints. If you want to set special prices or a different edition size then email me with your proposal. I strongly recommend that to reduce costs to a minimum you accept the standard deal! 
 If you want to look at the offer in detail you can read the detailed prospectus, African Print Services: A New Sales Opportunity for African Artists . This also describes what you need to know about the digital images required by the printers. The bigger the digital image, the better: but they can manage with relatively low resolutions, the minimum being some 1600 x 1200 pixels.
 I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU! If you have any questions, just reply to this email, or drop me a line at editor@negativeentropy.net .
 Best Wishes,

“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else“
– Margaret Mead

Certain aspects of one’s individual identity such as race, gender, ancestry, genetic makeup and so on, come naturally at birth.  One could, however, consciously choose other aspects such as nicknames, profession, religion, hairstyles, ways of life, gender expression et cetera, to make oneself more unique. Between choice and nature, there are aspects such as nationality, history, psyche and social roles, which influence our sense of identity. Identity could simply be personal disposition, or an unwilling imposition by the society at large.

If identification of self makes the person, collective identity allows for mutual recognition-security as well as solidarity.  Group attributes, though, could be real or virtual, lasting or ephemeral, like one’s profile on social media. Overemphasis of the collective, however, could result in alienation, prejudice, confrontation and even enmity.

In the age of globalization, a local majority could easily become a minority in the wider world.  As global citizens, we hope for and embrace the belief that elastic and flexible identities can bring diversity and progress, rather than confrontation.

If defining our collective identities in this city seems like an almost impossible pursuit, images could, perhaps, provide a platform to start.

“Most people are other people.  Their thoughts are someone else’s opinion, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation“
– Oscar Wilde

ArtPOP Promotes Artist’s Work on Billboards


ArtPOP! Promotes  Artist’s Work on Available Billboard Space.

Wendy Hickey is promoting artists and beautifying America with her ArtPOP! program.

Selected artist’s work is printed large-scale on a vinyl material that is guaranteed to last outdoors for one full year. In some cases, the artists receive their vinyl to keep.

But Wendy also plans to create purses, wallets, and messenger bags from the vinyls to sell and further fund the ArtPOP! program.

If you’d like to help fund ArtPOP! or if you are an artist interested in participating in your city, you will find further details in this feature article in Xposy Multimedia Magazine.
