Project Anywhere is a global blind peer reviewed exhibition program dedicated to promoting art and artistic research at the outermost limits of location-specificity. Since its inception in 2012, it has hosted between 4 and 8 projects annually. Although descriptions and images of hosted projects are featured on a dedicated website, Project Anywhere is not an online exhibition space. It is instead a vehicle for illuminating artistic projects located elsewhere in space and time. It is perhaps best imagined as an expanded exhibition space comprising the entire globe, and in which the role of curator is replaced with a blind peer evaluation model.
Project Anywhere’s evaluation criteria stress that all proposals must make a clear and compelling case for the proposed project’s potential to contribute to knowledge in an identified field of creative practice. It is also expected that all proposals identify relevant literature and related artistic precedents. Projects can be speculative or discursive in nature, and may extend or contradict existing methodologies. All proposals received by Project Anywhere are reviewed by 4 artist academics of international standing. Consequently, all applicants receive a comprehensive compilation of feedback for future consideration.
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 and projects already hosted by other institutions.
Please read our “Proposal Guidelines” and “Evaluation Criteria” carefully before submitting a proposal.
The deadline for proposal submissions for our 2018 program is September 1, 2017.
