apex art

Franchise Program 

Applications open: February 1–28, 2015

291 Church Street
New York, NY 10013
apexart announces our 8th annual Franchise Program open call, an opportunity for anyone to submit a proposal for an idea-driven, group exhibition to be presented anywhere in the world—except New York City.

Due to increased funding, apexart is adding an additional Franchise Exhibition to our 2015–16 season for a total of four winning projects, selected by a jury of over 100 creative professionals who vote online using apexart’s anonymized crowd-sourcing voting system. Winners receive a budget and administrative support to produce their exhibitions.

Proposals must be 500 words or less describing the central idea of the show. No links or images accepted.

Submit your proposal on the Franchise Program page starting February 1.

For apexart- they question the show in connection to the space. Where would we want our exhibition?

  • Submit your proposal for an idea-driven, group exhibition to be presented anywhere in the world – outside of New York City.
  • Submission are 500 words outlining your idea, where it will take place, and why the idea and location are connected.

  • What location would be appropriate for our work??
    Pradelna Bohelnice in an alternative space in Prague- an interesting space on the grounds of a mental institution. (I walked through that space as well as the mental hospital. The walls are very unpolished.)

    Any other ideas? Halfway between the city of my birth and yours??

    For what we've been talking about and thinking about, Pradelna Bohelnice sounds like it could be a good place to propose for this. I'm interested in intervening in a place where The Red Library was born.  But I'm not Czech and I don't know what the ramifications would be in that context. Does it matter? Let's go for it.
