apexart’s NYC Open Call 2019-20 Results

We are delighted to announce that University of Salford Art Collection and Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art Research Curator Marianna Tsionki exhibition proposal Meteorological Mobilities has been selected by apexart through its 2019-2020 NYC Open Call.

Marianna’s idea-based proposal was one of only three selected from 463 submissions and rated by 400 jurors who cast nearly 13,000 votes. Submissions and jurors came from more than 71 countries. Her proposal will be presented at apexart – nyc as part of their upcoming exhibition season.

Meteorological Mobilities urges a radical re-thinking on the way we act collectively upon climate change as planetary citizens. Far from promoting planetary catastrophism, exotic miseries, and passive resistance, the works on view aim to raise awareness of climate injustice and challenge the dominant political power of the countries and corporations which are primary contributors to climate change.
