Project Anywhere (2012–23) is delighted to announce its transformation into a permanent historical archive for future researchers. Project Anywhere was a global exhibition program designed to support art and artistic research at the outermost limits of location-specificity. By employing an innovative double-blind peer review model instead of a curator, Project Anywhere enabled artists and artistic researchers operating outside conventional exhibition circuits to receive peer evaluation, community support, and global dissemination of their work. Every proposal underwent rigorous review by at least four internationally recognized artist academics, with final selections made by an Editorial Committee.

To mark the cessation of this decade long Global Exhibition Program, Founder and Executive Director A/Prof Sean Lowry (University of Melbourne) offers profound gratitude and acknowledgement to International Editorial Committee members Prof Simone Douglas (Parsons School of Design, The New School), Prof Brad Buckley (University of Melbourne), Prof Amelia Jones (University of Southern California), Prof Su Baker (University of Melbourne),  Prof Bruce Barber, (NSCAD University), Prof Steve Dutton (Bath Spa University), A/Prof H. Lan Thao Lam (Parsons School for Design, The New School), Dr. Michael Schwab (Journal for Artistic Research), A/Prof Adam Geczy (University of Sydney), Dr. Les Joynes (FormLAB), Dr. Ilmar Taimre (independent researcher), Ms. Honi Ryan (independent artist) and Dr. Rafik Patel (AUT University). 

Project Anywhere would also like to acknowledge the enormous contributions of Director of Public Outreach Honi Ryan and Peer Review Communications Manager Dr Corinna Berndt.

Extending upon its exhibition program, Project Anywhere also hosted a series of biennial New York City based conferences, Melbourne based symposia, and published responses. All these events and publications were co-convened and co-edited by Prof Simone Douglas (Parsons School of Design, The New School) and A/Prof Sean Lowry (University of Melbourne). 

The ideas underpinning Project Anywhere’s radical rethinking of art at the outermost limits of location specificity are discussed at length in the 2022 Routledge publication Where is art?, edited by Project Anywhere Editorial Committee members Simone Douglas, Adam Geczy and Sean Lowry. 

Importantly, despite the Project Anywhere Global Exhibition Program (2012–23) being hosted and disseminated online, it should not be misconstrued as an online exhibition. Rather, its online presence serves to highlight the existence of works conceptually and physically situated in different times and spaces.

All peer reviewers for Project Anywhere were artist academics of international standing. All evaluations are archived for independent auditing. For more information, contact Sean Lowry.

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

Project Anywhere would also like to thank Mitch Goodwin for his occasional series Project(ed) Everywhere, 2024.
