Project Anywhere is a global blind peer reviewed exhibition of art at the outermost limits of location-specificity. Although descriptions and images of hosted projects are featured on a dedicated website, Project Anywhere is neither an online exhibition nor a journal. It is instead a vehicle for illuminating artistic projects located outside traditional exhibition circuits. It is perhaps best imagined as an exhibition comprising the entire globe in which the role of curator is replaced with a blind peer evaluation model. All proposals submitted to Project Anywhere are comprehensively reviewed by 4 artist academics of international standing. Project Anywhere accepts proposals from artists and researchers working anywhere in the world and is designed to suit artists seeking independent peer-validation and global dissemination for artistic research.

Please read our proposal guidelines and evaluation criteria carefully before submitting a proposal.

The deadline for proposal submissions for our 2020 global exhibition program is September 1, 2019.

2019 global exhbition program:

Listeners at Work (Delhi Listening Group) fuses social and aesthetic listening practices of social workers, educators and artists into a toolkit of ensemble creative research and experimental pedagogical practices.

Atopia: Stories + Vision by Refugees (Avia Rubin and Stephen Fan) seeks to bridge the architectural and social by re-inserting the refugee and their experience of place into conversations about migration and dislocation.

Firmament (Niccolò Moronato) investigates the formation of different contemporary identities, simultaneously generating hypotheses regarding history, imagination, and the creation of myths.

Following Burke and Wills (MONUMENTAL—Jason Waterhouse and Michael Needham) explores representations of cultural memory/heritage by probing historical narratives and Australian relationship with public monuments.

The Living (Annika Berry and Eliza Doyle), working in collaboration with Survivalists in and around New York City, this project explores and embodies the burden of threat as a means of opening up and revealing fragilities within our society, our ecosystem and ourselves.

Lowering Simon Fraser (Maddie Leach) proposes that a particular section of granite could be ‘lowered’ and then relocated to a small pond in a remote mountain pass in the Canadian Rockies, (where the Fraser River rises).

Drawing Wonder (Kiera O’Toole) examines how site-specific drawing has the capacity to create a sense of wonder in order to call attention to the ontological relationship between the subject [drawer and viewer] and the object [drawing] and the site.

Son of Man (Shelia Chukwulozie and Amir Hall) is a multidisciplinary artistic excavation of manhood in Lagos, Nigeria, and Trinidad and Tobago. This collaborative work attempts to translate and transcribe the Book of Job through a contemporary lens by engaging the stories of our fathers and men like them.

Signifiers (Aurora Del Rio, Alvin McIntyre and Lavina Bottamedi) utilizes ritual with a view to maintaining a language of primal symbolism, gestures, symbols and objects employed in a way that is separated from specific religions and other cultural traditions that use ritualistic forms.

Project Anywhere is proudly supported as part of a partnership between the Centre of Visual Art (University of Melbourne) and Parsons Fine Art (Parsons School of Design, The New School).
