Results - Open Call for Group Exhibitions in NYC 2018-19
Thank you for participating in the 2018-19 Open Calls Program. We received 509 proposals from people in 71 countries, which were voted on by an international panel of over 300 jurors (including students from 9 university classes around the world: Alfred University, New School, Evergreen State, Node Center, deAppel, RISD). Jurors were asked to read at least 50 anonymous proposals, and many read more. Together they cast 15,392 votes 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 higest ranking proposals were submitted by: Evelyn Owen (Tracing Obsolescence), Alexandra Stock (Art in Custody), and Justin Tyler Tate (Peer2Pickle). The Open Call Program accepts ideas for group exhibitions to be presented at the apexart space in NYC. The organizers of the three highest-ranked proposals will receive curatorial honorariums, funding for their exhibitions, and funding for exhibition-related public programming.

  Open Call Procedure
Tracing Obsolescence
submitted by: Evelyn Owen
(from Brooklyn, New York, USA)

Tracing Obsolescence explores the material and psychic residues of global large-scale manufacturing and extraction that haunt the post-industrial subconscious. Through prints, video, and installation, it draws out obscured links between industry and contemporary environmental, socio-economic, and geopolitical crises.

Art in Custody
submitted by: Alexandra Stock
(from Cairo, Egypt)

Art in Custody presents artworks defaced or destroyed and documentation of objects altogether lost at the hands of customs officers in the Middle East. The exhibition creates a safe space for objects damaged either through deliberate force or passive negligence as they are moved across borders, examining the consequences of overzealous control due to misunderstanding or abuse in a regional climate of political paranoia.

(from Cape Coral, Florida, USA)

Peer2Pickle takes on the global problem of food waste and consequent greenhouse gas increases by designing a workshop and factory for transforming fresh local produce into extended shelf-life goods. In light of the absence of governmental and corporate incentives to address the issue, the project follows an open-source model as it generates its own web-based archive of recipes and strategies.
