Project Anywhere 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 research undertaken outside conventional exhibition contexts, Project Anywhere is dedicated to the promotion of art at the outermost limits of location-specificity.
Project Anywhere endorses a 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 serve artist academics working anywhere in the world that are seeking independent peer-validation and international dissemination for their research.
Project Anywhere endorses a rigorous two-stage peer review process. First, an independent blind peer review of proposal submissions by multiple artist academics of international standing is employed in order to rate and select hosted projects. Next, a second open peer review determines which project outcomes are finally archived as “validated research outcomes”.
Project Anywhere accepts proposals for individual and collaborative projects from artists working anywhere in the world. With only four projects hosted each year, selection is extremely competitive. Project Anywhere does not provide project funding nor expect exclusivity. We also welcome multi-partnered and collaborative projects and/or projects that are hosted by other arts institutions that are seeking peer-validation.
Your proposal should include the following:
# Title of proposed project.
# Location(s), date(s) and duration for proposed project (this can be updated later).
# A detailed project proposal clearly stating the project’s potential for creating new knowledge (please refer to the peer review guidelines).
# 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 proposal document and accompanying materials. Contact details should only be included in the body of the email only. Please note that submissions that do not conform to the above criteria will not be sent out for peer review.
