Project Anywhere acknowledges that many in its global community of peers are now living and working under extraordinarily precarious conditions. With this in mind, we have decided to extend the current Global Exhibition Program for one additional year and move our next proposal deadline to September 1, 2021. During this time, we will continue to reach out through our existing online channels and develop a special fourth issue in our innovative book series "Anywhere."
Project Anywhere is a global blind peer reviewed exhibition model for art at the outermost limits of location-specificity. Although descriptions and images of hosted projects are featured on the website, Project Anywhere is neither an online exhibition nor a journal. It is instead a vehicle for illuminating artistic research and projects that take place outside traditional exhibition circuits. Project Anywhere is perhaps best imagined as an exhibition comprising the entire globe in which the role of the curator is replaced with a blind peer evaluation model.
All proposals submitted to Project Anywhere are comprehensively reviewed by four artist academics of international standing and all applicants receive comprehensive feedback on their proposal submission. Project Anywhere accepts proposals from artists and researchers working anywhere in the world and is designed to suit artists seeking independent peer-validation and global dissemination for artistic research.Project Anywhere’s evaluation criteria stress that all proposals must make a clear and compelling case for a proposed project’s capacity to contribute to knowledge in an identified field of creative practice. Accordingly, it is expected that proposals identify related artistic precedents and relevant literature. Projects can be highly speculative or discursive in nature and can extend or contradict existing methodologies.
