APPLICATION DEADLINE: prolonged to midnight on 11 December 2017
POPPOSITIONS was established by Liv Vaisberg and Pieter Vermeulen in 2012 as a counterpoint to mainstream art fairs, and has grown as the leading fair offering an alternative market for contemporary art. In the past six years, POPPOSITIONS has been dealing with questions of artistic agency, self-organisation, cynicism and criticality in order to shape its profile within the cultural and economic landscape.
For the second edition in a row, Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk (The Office for Curating, NL) is the artistic director.
POPPOSITIONS is more than an art fair. It encourages new, experimental and innovative approaches to the art market. It is both a curated exhibition and an ongoing critical dialogue.
POPPOSITIONS strongly believes in a collaborative approach, and works closely with artists, curators and collectors.
POPPOSITIONS welcomes submissions from any kind of contemporary art initiative: commercial galleries, collectives, artist-run spaces, curatorial platforms or not-for-profit organisations. Participants must seek original ways to distribute or disseminate contemporary art. Applicants need to rely on already
existing organisations that are not created for the sole purpose of POPPOSITIONS.
For this edition, proposals are limited to solo shows, which will be curated by POPPOSITIONS into one single exhibition. All forms of media and artistic disciplines are accepted.
