apexart’s Open Calls present an opportunity for artists, curators, and other professionals to turn their idea into an apexart Exhibition. Open Call periods happen twice annually: in October, we invite proposals for our NYC space, and in February, we invite proposals for anywhere in the world, except for NYC. Winning proposals become part of apexart’s Exhibition Season and receive production funding and significant production support. This is not a grant, but rather an opportunity to curate/organize an apexart exhibition.

500-word proposals should describe a focused, idea-driven, and original group exhibition. Submissions also require a list of three potential artists, though this list will not be shown to the jury, and is not included in the 500-word limit.

Creative people who have interesting exhibition ideas. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level, background, or location can apply.

The opportunity to organize an apexart exhibition. No topics off limits, no ideas too controversial as long as they are not illegal and are selected by our international jury.

» Proposals for exhibitions outside NYC are accepted February 1 – March 1, 2020 for apexart’s 2020-21 program season.
» Proposals for exhibitions in NYC are accepted October 1 – 31, 2020 for apexart’s 2021-22 program season.

For exhibitions proposed outside NYC, you must select a location where you have spent some time so you have a sense of the location logistics and potential challenges of organizing an exhibition there. The exhibition venue need not be known/declared at the time of submission.
