Apexart > Franchise Exhibition Programme

Since 2009, apexart has been hosting Franchise Exhibitions around the world. Started to address the boundaries of art and business, the Franchise Exhibition Program has since presented over 20 exhibitions in 15 different countries and 4 states, each exploring an idea specific to the location.

For the next edition, four winners will be the director, curator, and/or staff of their own month-long apexart Franchise with a budget, a salary, and almost complete control of the project's development. 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.
