Unsolicited Proposal Program: Winning exhibitions

Following a month-long voting period in which 208 jurors from over 75 countries evaluated 532 proposals, apexart is pleased to announce the three winning exhibitions of its Unsolicited Proposal Program. The following exhibitions will be presented at apexart as part of the 2016–17 exhibition season.

Clelia Coussonnet (Aix-en-Provence, France): Botany Under Influence explores systems of meaning that have been impressed upon nature, flora, and seeds throughout eras of imperialism, colonialism, and globalization. The exhibition reveals how the exportation of natural resources has affected power structures and cultural behavior.

Rabbya Naseer (Lahore, Pakistan): Promises to Keep confronts the rarity with which performance art is exhibited in Naseer’s native Pakistan. She presents the work of ten female Pakistani artists, addressing how women specifically use the medium to engage in self-representation and socio-political issues.

Emily Falvey (Montreal, Canada): Animal Intent tracks how animal culture is used as a point of departure for a range of artistic practices focused primarily on interspecies communication. The exhibition questions whether creative labor is strictly a human trait.
