Help us determine what our shows are about. The apexart Open Call occurs twice annually soliciting idea-driven, group exhibition proposals from everyone, anywhere. Proposals must be 500 words or less, in English (Google translate works well) and contain no images, links, videos, or CVs so that jurors can focus on the idea only. It takes about 90 min. over one month.
The Jury is composed of approximately 400 individuals and arts-related classes from around the world and uses an online crowdsourcing system. Each juror votes on a subset of anonymous and randomized proposals. Our selection process results in exhibitions that reflect the interests and sensibilities of our international audiences, while allowing artists and curators from locations that don’t get their due attention to compete on a fair playing field. We ask jurors to read and rate 50 proposals. Each juror is given an individual login and password, and at its conclusion, the process generates more than 16,000 votes on 450-500 submissions. The five proposals with the highest average scores at the end of the month-long voting period become apexart exhibitions.
apexart jurors review ideas coming from all around the world and actually determine apexart's exhibition programming. They gain a real-world perspective of issues while considering what makes one proposal compelling and another less so. Our last Open Call drew proposals and jurors from 89 countries. The variety of proposals provides valuable insight into the themes, conditions, history and ideas that are pressing in local and international contexts.
