apexart is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit contemporary visual arts organization located in Lower Manhattan. Through our exhibitions, international residency, publication initiatives, and programs and events, we are committed to cultural and intellectual diversity and aim to stimulate public dialogue about contemporary art. Our exhibitions and programs are intended to promote consideration among our local audience while extending the dialogue to our international audience through our print and electronic outreach.
Since our inception in 1994, more than 1,200 artists, from emerging to established and from all over the globe, have participated in 150 exhibitions. Each year apexart presents seven group exhibitions, hosts eight international residents, organizes numerous public lectures and performances, and distributes 70,000 full-color interpretive exhibition brochures to individuals and institutions in 95 countries. In addition, our web-based audience consists of over 17,000 unique visitors monthly from more than 100 nations. This widespread distribution and outreach of our programs is vital to apexart's ability to develop new audiences and to bring new voices and critical perspectives to New York.
We have been privileged to work with such well-known individuals as Vito Acconci, Martha Rosler, Dave Hickey, John Baldessari, Hou Hanru, Ute Meta Bauer, David Byrne, Janine Antoni, Kerry James Marshall and Jean-Hubert Martin as well as other known and lesser known individuals from around the world.
