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 and research at the outermost limits of location-specificity.
Project Anywhere endorses a rigorous two-stage peer review process for assessing the quality of research outcomes. First, blind peer evaluations by artist academics of international standing determine which projects will be hosted. A second open peer review of project outcomes determines which projects are finally archived as “validated research” (all hosted 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. Instead, Project Anywhere is designed to suit artist academics seeking independent peer-validation and international dissemination for their research. Project Anywhere welcomes collaborative projects and projects hosted by other institutions seeking peer-validation.
Please read our “Proposal Guidelines” and “Evaluation Criteria” carefully before submitting a proposal.
The deadline for proposal submissions for our 2016 program is September 1, 2015.
