Seven exhibitions are presented by apexart every season, each accompanied by a full color brochure containing reproductions of the works in the show and an essay by the curator. Our seasonal exhibition program is generally arranged with three exhibitions organized by invited individuals, two exhibitions selected from our Unsolicited Proposal Program and two exhibitions organized outside of New York through our Franchise Program.

You may request past brochures (available free of charge) and sign up for our mailing list to receive future invitations and brochures on our feedback page.

There is no admission charge. Gallery hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 11-6 p.m.
  apexart's Unsolicited Proposal program is an opportunity for anyone from anywhere to submit an exhibition proposal to apexart. During an announced call period, apexart accepts 500-word, idea-based exhibition proposals for evaluation by a large international jury. We believe that our complex system of crowd sourced jurying it is the most objective and fair processes of evaluation. Submissions are reviewed anonymously and solely on the strength of their idea. Previous curatorial experience is no way required and will not factor in the selection process. Three proposals with the highest ratings are presented each season at apexart. For those in or outside the field, this program is a unique opportunity to have a professionally mounted exhibition in New York City!

  Based on the idea of creating a franchise, apexart holds a worldwide open call for proposals for group exhibitions to be presented anywhere in the world other than New York City. Annually we accept 500-word submissions outlining your idea for an exhibition. Three winners selected by a jury will be the director, curator and/or staff of their own month-long apexart franchise with an $8,000 exhibition budget, a modest salary, and almost complete control. apexart provides the funding along with the necessary guidance and administrative support to make the curated exhibition happen. The Franchise is an opportunity to help bring an idea to fruition in a new place and to illustrate that the center of the world is wherever you are.
