Project Anywhere is an expanded global exhibition model in which the role of curator is replaced with the type of peer review model typically endorsed by a refereed journal. Emphasizing art and research undertaken outside traditional circuits, Project Anywhere is dedicated to the evaluation and dissemination of art and research at the outermost limits of location-specificity.
Project Anywhere endorses a rigorous two-stage peer review process. First, double blind evaluations of all project proposals by artist academics of international standing determines which projects will be hosted each year. A second open peer review process of project “outcomes” determines which projects are archived as “validated research” (all other hosted projects are placed in a general archive at the cessation of the hosting period).
Project Anywhere accepts proposals from artists and researchers working anywhere in the world. With only a handful of projects hosted each year, selection is very competitive. Please note that Project Anywhere does not provide funding nor expect exclusivity. Instead, Project Anywhere is designed to suit artist academics seeking independent peer-validation and international dissemination for their research. Project Anywhere also welcomes collaborative and curatorial projects or projects already hosted by other institutions seeking peer-validation.
Project Anywhere would like to extend enormous gratitude to Parsons The New School for Design (USA), NSCAD University (Canada), Anonymous (Australia), The University of Lincoln (UK), The University of Newcastle (Australia), The University of Melbourne (Australia), and Auckland University of Technology (New Zealand) for consistent and ongoing support of this groundbreaking global initiative.
