4.Â Project Anywhere : Deadline for proposal submissions for our 2014 program isÂ September 1, 2013.
Project AnywhereÂ 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 projects situated 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 two-stage 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 suit artist academics working anywhere in the world who are seeking independent peer validation and international web-based dissemination for practice-based research.
Please send proposals (as an attachment) toÂ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your proposal should include the following:
1. Title of proposed project.
2. Location(s), date(s) and duration for proposed project (this can be updated later).
3. A detailed project proposal clearly stating the project’s potential for creating new knowledge (please refer to the peer review guidelines atÂ www.projectanywhere.net).
4. Images, files (under 8mg in total) and links can be included where appropriate.
NB: To be eligible for the first stage of our peer review process, it is imperative that ALL name and contact details are removed from the actual proposal document (and accompanying materials). Contact details should be included in the body of the email only. Any submissions that do not conform to the above criteria will NOT be sent out for peer review. Please note that Project Anywhere does not provide project funding nor expect exclusive hosting rights. Accordingly, we welcome multi-partnered and collaborative projects and/or projects that are hosted by other arts institutions seeking blind peer-validation.Â more here.
