apexart :: NYC Exhibition 2019 Open Call Ranking
NYC Open Call 2019-20 Ranking

Thank you for participating in the 2019 NYC Open Call. We received 463 eligible proposals from 67 countries, which were voted on by an international panel of over 400 jurors. Jurors were asked to read at least 50 anonymous proposals. Nearly 13,000 votes were cast to determine the winning proposals. Below is a ranking of all submitted proposals in order of highest total score. Proposals with the same total score share place positions and are ranked with the same number.

The three highest ranking proposals were submitted by: Elizabeth Breiner (A Silence That Silences), Sam Gordon (Souls Grown Diaspora), and Marianna Tsionki (Meteorological Mobilities). The NYC Open Call accepts ideas for group exhibitions to be presented at apexart, 291 Church Street, in New York City. The organizers of the three highest-ranked proposals will receive curatorial honorariums, funding for their exhibitions, and funding for exhibition-related public programming.
