apexart: Franchise Program

Deadline: February 28, 2015 {ONLINE}

Franchise Program

New York, NY

Based on the idea of creating a franchise, apexart holds a worldwide open call for proposals for group exhibitions to be presented anywhere in the world other than New York City. Annually we accept 500-word submissions outlining your idea for an exhibition.

Three 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.

Accepting submissions from February 1 - 28, 2015.

One of apexart's two curatorial open calls, the Franchise asks for submissions for exhibitions that examine a specific idea or theme. Exhibitions can be about anything that the organizer finds compelling and can take place anywhere other than NYC. Past shows have explored construction in Mexico City, community in Memphis, and translation in Kampala.

The Franchise is an opportunity to help bring a compelling idea to fruition and to illustrate that the center of the world is wherever you are. Please note that apexart is not a funding organization and exhibitions are part of apexart's regular programming.
