Submissions Open for Unsolicited Exhibition Proposals NYC

Unsolicited Proposal Program

Submissions open: October 131, 2015

apexart
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.

One art gallery on our International Art Gallery Directory E-list, of the many listed that are accepting submissions and exhibition proposals, is the Chazan Gallery. This current call is for solo and group shows for their 2015-2017 seasons.

In the image above, the item– “Images must be numbered and listed accordingly on an image list with titles, dates, medium and size” is often simply referred to as the image script.

 

 

Artists: Use Free Tools on CuratorSpace to Manage Your Art Submissions

blogCuratorSpacelogo_and_title

Artist may open a free account on the CuratorSpace site and add your details and images for creating your submissions for Open Studios, Artist book fair exhibitor applications, Arts and crafts fair applications, Residency proposals, Exhibition proposals, Artist portfolio, 2D/3D art, film/video, and sound art. The advantage of creating your submissions in these categories  on CreateSpace is that you won’t have to recreate the entire submission for each opportunity. For instance, if you submit to Open Studio every year, all your details are already in place for reuse. The same with your exhibition proposal, you can reuse your proposal for multiple submissions. Make as many submissions as you like with just a few clicks. A real timesaver!

The CuratorSpace site also has a list of exhibition opportunities for artists and if you have a project the site allows you to create your own call for artists and accept submissions.
