Project Anywhere is an expanded exhibition model encompassing the entire globe (and beyond) in which the role of curator is replaced with the type of peer review model typically endorsed by a refereed journal. Emphasizing artistic research undertaken outside conventional exhibition contexts, Project Anywhere is dedicated to the promotion of advanced artistic practice at the outermost limits of location-specificity.
Project Anywhere endorses a peer review system comparable with the journal-based paradigm for assessing the quality of research outcomes in the arts. Accordingly, Project Anywhere is designed to serve artist academics working anywhere in the world and seeking independent peer-validation and international dissemination for their practice-based research.
Project Anywhere endorses a rigorous two-stage peer review process. First, an independent blind peer review of proposal submissions by multiple artist academics of international standing is employed in order to rate and select hosted projects. Next, a second open peer review determines which project outcomes are finally archived as “validated research outcomes”.
Project Anywhere accepts proposals for individual and collaborative projects from artists working anywhere in the world. With only four projects hosted each year, selection is extremely competitive. Project Anywhere does not provide project funding nor expect exclusivity. We also welcome multi-partnered and collaborative projects and/or projects that are hosted by other arts institutions that are 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.
