On April 4th apexart’s Franchise Program will accept 500-word proposals for group exhibitions to take place anywhere in the world except New York City.
Exhibitions can be about any idea or theme that the organizer finds compelling. Past shows have explored highway construction in Mexico City; climate in Los Angeles; manufacturing in Bangkok; immigration in Stockholm; and video DJs in Kampala, Uganda. No prior curatorial experience is required and we welcome submissions from people of all backgrounds. An international jury of more than 100 people in multiple disciplines evaluates proposals and the three winning exhibitions will be presented in apexart’s 2014–2015 season.
Proposals are accepted online at www.apexart.org/thefranchise April 4–May 3, 2013. You may also visit this page for FAQs and other guidelines:
