Program Description

apexart will accept proposals for its International Open Call from February 1 - March 1, 2020. Four winning proposals will become apexart exhibitions presented in selected locations around the world as part of its 2020-21 exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of location, or past experience are invited to submit a proposal online. Rather than convene a small local panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowd-sourced voting system allows hundreds of international jurors to review proposals on their own schedule. An crowd-sourced jury composed of more than 350 individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds—as well as many participating university classes—will jury the proposals. Proposals are anonymous and randomized to make sure each submission receives the same consideration. apexart staff do not influence the results of the jury in any way.
