Project Anywhere is an expanded exhibition model encompassing the entire globe in which the role of curator is replaced with the type of peer review model typically endorsed by a refereed journal. Emphasizing research undertaken outside conventional exhibition contexts, Project Anywhere is dedicated to the evaluation and dissemination of art at the outermost limits of location-specificity.
Project Anywhere endorses a unique rigorous two-stage peer review process for assessing the quality of research outcomes. First, double blind evaluations by artist academics of international standing determine which projects are hosted. A second open peer review of directly experienced or substantially documented project outcomes determines what is finally archived as “validated research” (all other projects are placed in a general archive at the cessation of the hosting period).
Project Anywhere accepts proposals from artists working anywhere in the world. With only a handful of projects hosted each year, selection is extremely competitive. Please note that Project Anywhere does not provide funding nor expect exclusivity. Project Anywhere is instead designed to suit artist academics working anywhere in the world that are seeking independent peer-validation and international dissemination for their research. Project Anywhere also welcomes collaborative projects and projects hosted by other institutions seeking peer-validation.
Please read our “Proposal Guidelines” and “Peer Review Policy” carefully before submitting a proposal.
The deadline for proposal submissions for our 2015 program is September 1, 2014.
