More info and to submit:
We will provide up to $10,000 USD in funding, along with the necessary guidance to make your curated exhibition happen, accompanied by an apexart brochure. In addition, prior to your show, we’ll arrange to bring you to NYC for three days, all expenses paid, to visit apexart and meet our staff.
