International Call for Proposals: Project Anywhere 2019 Global Exhibition Program
Proposal guidelines deadline: September 1st, 2019
From their call: Project Anywhere is a global blind peer reviewed exhibition program dedicated to art and artistic research at the outermost limits of location-specificity. Although descriptions and images of hosted projects are featured on a dedicated website, Project Anywhere is neither an online exhibition nor a journal.It is instead a vehicle for illuminating artistic projects located outside traditional exhibition circuits. It is perhaps best imagined as an exhibition comprising the entire globe in which the role of curator is replaced with a blind evaluation system.
All proposals submitted to Project Anywhere are comprehensively reviewed by 4 artist academics of international standing. Re-submitted “provisionally accepted” proposals are then reviewed by our International Editorial Committee.
Project Anywhere’s evaluation criteria stress that all proposals must make a clear and compelling case for a proposed project’s capacity to contribute to knowledge in an identified field of creative practice. Accordingly, it is expected that proposals identify related artistic precedents and relevant literature. Projects can be highly speculative or discursive in nature and can extend or contradict existing methodologies.
Your proposal should include the following:
1.) Title of proposed project
2.) Location(s), date(s) and duration (if known) for proposed project. This information can be updated later.
3.) A detailed project proposal clearly stating the project’s potential for creating new knowledge (please refer to our evaluation criteria)
4.) Images, audio/visual materials and (non-attributable) links can be included where appropriate
NB: To be eligible for blind peer evaluation, it is imperative that all name and contact details are removed from the proposal document (and all accompanying materials). Contact details should be included in the body of the email only.
At the cessation of Project Anywhere’s annual Global Exhibition Program, all hosted projects are eligible to present at our biennial conference Anywhere and Elsewhere at Parsons Fine Art in New York City. This biennial conference event features presentations from artists that have successfully navigated blind peer evaluation through Project Anywhere, together with a series of invited presentations from artists, scholars, curators and writers actively engaged with art and artistic research at the outermost limits of location specificity. Following the biennial conference, all presenters are invited to contribute to our innovative biennial publication Anywhere. This publication features contributions ranging from scholarly texts to photo essays to annotated diagrams and graphic illustrations (or indeed any page-based representation of projects typically located elsewhere in space and time). Considered together, Project Anywhere, Anywhere and Elsewhere and Anywhere reveal distinctive reflective moments in the process from conception through production to dissemination in artistic research beyond traditional exhibition circuits.
Project Anywhere accepts proposals from artists and researchers working anywhere in the world and is designed to suit artists seeking independent peer-validation and international dissemination for artistic research. Project Anywhere does not provide funding nor expect exclusivity. It also welcomes collaborative or curatorial projects or projects hosted by other institutions.
