Project Anywhere acknowledges that many in its global community of peers are now living and working under extraordinarily precarious conditions. With this in mind, we have decided to extend the current Global Exhibition Program for one additional year and move our next proposal deadline to September 1, 2021. During this time, we will continue to reach out through our existing online channels and develop a special fourth issue in our innovative book series "Anywhere."

Project Anywhere is a global blind peer reviewed exhibition model for art at the outermost limits of location-specificity. Although descriptions and images of hosted projects are featured on the website, Project Anywhere is neither an online exhibition nor a journal. It is instead a vehicle for illuminating artistic research and projects that take place outside traditional exhibition circuits. Project Anywhere 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 four artist academics of international standing and all applicants receive comprehensive feedback on their proposal submission. 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.

Project Anywhere’s evaluation criteria stress that all proposals must make a clear and compelling case for a proposed project’s capacity to contribute to knowledge in an identified field of creative practice. Accordingly, it is expected that proposals identify related artistic precedents and relevant literature. Projects can be highly speculative or discursive in nature and can extend or contradict existing methodologies.

All hosted projects are also invited to present at one of our biennial conferences and contribute to our biennial book series Anywhere. Importantly, Project Anywhere does not provide funding nor expect exclusivity. We welcome collaborative or curatorial projects as well as projects hosted by other institutions.

2020 Global Exhibition Program

Hawapi (Susie Quillinan and Maxim Holland): an independent arts organization that takes artists to unexpected and challenging locations to develop and produce interventions in public space.

Water Spells (Adriana Salaza) explores relationships between humans, water and land within the context of Mexico City—one of the largest metropolises on the planet and in which hydric sustainability is uncertain.

Crossways. The Bridge as A Readymade (Anthony McInneny and Beatriz Maturana Cossio) investigates the bridge as a metaphor for communication in the context of Santiago’s urban culture.

–out-of-line– / (Sonam Chaturvedi and Suvani Suri): a virtual exhibition space built over cell phone networks using ‘the call’ as a site to showcase sound and text-based works.

A Guide to Remembering: The Colonial Amnesia Project (Tania Blackwell): a new landscape memorial typology derived through social exchange and collective encounters

Zao-A History of Chinese Dishcourse Through Famine and Revolution (Siri Lee): a speculative and polyphonic historical reconstruction of events surrounding China’s Great Leap Forward (1958–61) and Cultural Revolution (1966–76).

American Landscape(s) AR (Seol Park): an independent augmented reality production that addresses themes of migration, romanticism, realism/reality, landscape painting traditions and digital technology.

Invisibledrum Art Platform (Amalia Fonfara and Nazaré Soares): a platform consisting of artists and researchers that focuses on animism in transdisciplinary fields of knowledge, encompassing practices within the arts, creative ecologies, technology, embodied cognition, healing practices, speculative design and psychology.

Islands of Time (Niccolò Masini) explores relationships between the formulation of the intangible feeling of belonging and the construction of geographical identity.

Museum for the Displaced (Ana Sophie Salazar, Mohammed Golabi, Samantha Leong and Canan Batur): a cultural and social organization addressing issues of forced migration, displacement, and statelessness that unfolds over multiple geographies and contexts.

The Quintessence (Pamela Breda) utilizes moving images, photographs and installations to explore visual imaginaries and archives, stressing the links between pictures, their narrative potential and their contexts of production and reception.

The Ruderal Library (Hannah Hirsekorn): an activated art object that seeks to represent an ecologically oriented perspectival shift in the domains of the “natural” and the “urban” from opposites to symbiotic partners.

Plastic Mahal (Palace of Plastic) (Ben Parry): a temporary public sculpture and political performance in the mode of a processional ritual across various sites in Mumbai. The temple is built from the city’s waste, which aggregates in the informal recycling centre in Dharavi’s 13th Compound.
