Brochures
Every apexart exhibition is accompanied by a brochure with a text by the curator and color images of the works in the show. Approximately 7,000 are mailed to an increasing number of individuals and institutions around the world each month and every visitor to apexart is offered one - all free of charge. The brochure communicates the curator's idea and serves as a surrogate for those unable to see the exhibition.
