apexart has been making people think for more than 20 years with innovative and unique approaches to programming. Fewer politics and more transparency resulting in more meritocratic and provocative exhibitions in NYC and around the world.

apexart exhibitions are selected from hundreds of anonymous proposals by an international jury of more than 200 people. Who you know doesn’t matter, the quality of your idea and how well you communicate it does. When an exhibition proposal is selected for apexart’s program season, it means that the idea is seen as compelling and worth developing by a large diverse jury that wants to see it transformed from a proposal into an exhibition.

apexart exhibitions feature works about everything, from anywhere, by anyone. If you follow what we do, you might discover something new or end up contributing to our programming.

In 2017, Animal Intent explored creature creativity, Promises to Keep presented performance art by women Pakistani artists, and Fellow Travelers explored the intersections of science fiction and migration narratives. apexart has also held exhibitions in places like Tarrafal, Cape Verde—examining histories of post-colonial prisons in Glimmer of Freedomand Tbilisi, Georgia—probing the legacy of Soviet Cosmonautics in Illegal Kosmonavtika.

apexart awards a budget of USD 10,000 to each selected exhibition and its related programming, and organizers receive a USD 2,000 honorarium for coordinating the project and writing the exhibition essay.

Proposals for group exhibitions in our NYC exhibition space will be accepted from October 1-31, 2017.

Call for creative digital projects, Vienna. Deadline: Oct. 3, 2017

INDEPENDENT AIRS. RESIDENCY. DEADLINE: OCTOBER 23, 2017

Dates:  November 20th 2017 to January 30th 2018

These residency periods outside of AiR Sefrou’s designed programs are focused towards artists from all disciplines to spend time contemplating, researching and producing work that needs attention. It may be that the artists are residing alone or with up to five others in the house. Cultures and material of work will be diverse.

The artists house (a stone’s throw away from AIR Sefrou’s office), is nestled in the heart of the ancient medina in Sefrou ( a market town positioned between the Middle Atlas Mountains and the Imperial Capital of Fez).

Our intimate team and growing community are here to support artists in their endeavours while introducing them to beneficial contacts and orientating them to local gatherings, if desired. Assistance to the artist and project facilitators are available upon prior request at a reasonable rate to help with the construction of works and further cultural exploration. Language interpretation and intercultural facilitation may be needed to help the artists in residence to understand the cultural landscape and manifest their vision:

We are open to holding presentations, exhibitions and workshops during the residency. This can be discussed once the intentions take shape.

Artists may get involved with Culture Vultures socially responsible program. Past events have included works such as a mural on a wall in the old city, planting green areas, public monuments and a contribution to our ‘Art in the Hospital’ initiative.

The minimum duration of a residency is three weeks.
This enables time to integrate into the culture as well as having days for comprehensive research and production.

 

Residency Costs

For a place in our artist’s lodgings and orientation of Sefrou

3 weeks 550 euros

1 month 700 euros

2 month 1200 euros.

Cost of production, transport, insurance and daily needs are the responsibilities of the artist.  For studio spaces (outside of the lodgings), facilitated visits and exhibition organization e-mail us for a supplementary costs document.

For returning AiR Sefrou artists there is a discount of 15% for residencies as we, the organization and the community of Sefrou, celebrate further developing relationships and creations.

Photography Call. Galerie Sehnsucht. Deadline: Oct. 15, 2017

We call for entries from photographers and photographic artists with images that are dedicated to Sehnsucht. Our first exhibition will be on view with this title from November 1st, until December 10th, in our wonderful gallery at the Vijverhofstraat. It will show our selection from the works that were submitted in the call. We will be assisted in making this selection by Philippe Moroux. Philippe is an artist and photographer who lectures at the Academy of Art and Design St. Joost in Breda, Netherlands. He will be the guest curator for this exhibition.

sehnsucht (n) “the inconsolable longing in the human heart for we know not what”

‘Sehnsucht’ is a German word, but known to artists for centuries. Friedrich von Schelling, a German author and thinker, called Sehnsucht the “gravity of our emotions”. It explains the never ending search people set out to do, a searching in the world, in the hearts of other people, a search in themselves … but not knowing quite for certain what they are looking for, it’s more a feeling than a word. The old idea of the ‘Wanderer’, always restless and thinking that happiness is somewhere else, is closely connected to it. Sehnsucht can apply to small longings, intimate things, but just as well to great things and deeds that one wants to happen, or to the loneliness the individual looks for in the face of the sublime.
Popular as emotion in the arts from the days of the romantics in the 19th century, the word can be applied on work of photographers as different as Alfred Stieglitz, Bill Brandt, Sally Man or William Egglestone.

Your work can be anything from a straight photograph, to manipulated and even drawn photoshop projects, from alternative 19th century photographic techniques to modern, computer made images, graphic arts (etchings, litho’s…), as long as it’s based on one or more photographic images (no drawings or paintings) and you can show us how it looks by sending us a digital file.
