In collaboration with curators from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, the winner will have the opportunity to curate an exhibition at their campus art gallery with artworks from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation collection. The panel of judges includes John Elderfield, Branden W. Joseph, Shirin Neshat, Christopher Rauschenberg, and Sarah Roberts, who determined the four finalists. The winner is chosen by you. Voting ends November 18, 2014 11:59 pm EST (Eastern Standard Time).
Artsy received 138 thought-provoking exhibition proposals from four continents, 22 countries, and 78 cities, such as Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, London, Melbourne, Mexico City, Milan, Moscow, and more. It was a tough decision for the judges to choose the finalists, and we would like to recognize seven exceptional proposals as Honorable Mentions. Congratulations to all of the students for participating!
