Call for Entries
apexart Franchise jury
Deadline: June 30
Based on the idea of creating a franchise, apexart is once again holding our worldwide open call for proposals for group exhibitions to be presented anywhere in the world other than New York City. From May 26 to June 30, 2011 we will accept 450-word submissions outlining your idea for an exhibition. Specific artists and venues need not be determined, but the concept should be well developed and the city specified. Two winners selected by a jury will be the director, curator and/or staff of their own month-long apexart franchise with an $8,000 exhibition budget, a modest salary, and almost complete control. apexart provides the funding along with the necessary guidance and administrative support to make the curated exhibition happen. This includes an apexart brochure in an edition of 10,000 with an essay from the curator that is distributed around the world to more than 108 countries. The Franchise is an opportunity to help bring an idea to fruition in a new place and to illustrate that the center of the world is wherever you are. For more information, click here.
