Curators are invited to send one work each by two different artists to the “Most Curatorial Biennial of the Universe.”

All works must be received between June 16 – July 5.

Works must measure 8 inches x 10 inches with a maximum depth/height of 4 inches (20×25 x 10 centimeters), including any framing. Works can be vertical, horizontal, or lay flat. If a work goes on the wall, it must have a hole or a hook for hanging; if it sits on a flat surface it will be shown at table height, next to others; it cannot be toxic, or wet (although we will fill any “lakes or indents” with clear water if requested).

On the back of each piece include the artist’s and curator’s names and email addresses. Drop off during gallery hours or mail to:

apexart attn: Most Curatorial Biennial 291 Church Street New York, NY 10013

Works will not be returned or insured and pieces larger or smaller than 8×10 inches (20×25 cm) will not be accepted.. No COD’s will be accepted. All works must be received between June 16 – July 5

During the show all works will be available by anonymous bidding, starting with a $10 donation and going up in $10 increments. All proceeds will go directly to the Robin Hood Foundation of NYC. Absolutely no funds will go to apexart.

All submissions will be displayed on our website, on which we will also be accepting bids. We ask that you please include a JPEG image at 72 dpi measuring 300×240 pixels, either on a CD with the submission or by e-mail. Thanks for doing this.

Submissions must be by the curator in one package. They may be dropped off or mailed.

All submissions are accepted, nothing (legal) will be censored.

Up to 1000 works will be accepted, but phone calls will not. Email all inquiries to [email protected], we’ll get right back to you.

FAQ’s:

Q: Can I submit more than two artists for the exhibition? A: No.

Q: When will the works be available for pick up/distribution? A: August 11 – (the final day of exhibition)

Q. Can really famous curators and/or artists participate? A: You bet. apexart treats everyone the same

Q: I’m an artist, can I submit my own work? Yes, for the purposes of the show you would be the “curator” of your own works.

Q: Why should I bother? This sounds like another situation that takes advantage of artists. A: Depending what else is on your resume it looks good, funds go to a really good cause and its an opportunity to have fun making something that you wouldn’t otherwise make. Participation won’t make you a famous artist if you aren’t one already. Have fun, don’t spend too much time or money. Limited postage funds available on an as needed basis.

curators can be artists, writers, or anyone so inclined.

Thank you for your participation!
