apexart is a non-profit arts organization in Lower Manhattan. Founded by artist Steven Rand in 1994, it was conceived to offer opportunities to independent curators and emerging and established artists, as well as to challenge ideas about art, its practice and curation. apexart realizes this mission through exhibitions, an international residency program, a book publishing initiative, and public programs and events. To date it has worked with over 1,500 artists from around the world in its exhibition and residency programs.

Each year there are seven group exhibits, eight residencies (a one-month stay in New York) and at least 50 public lectures and performances. Vito Acconci, Martha Rosler, Dave Hickey, John Baldessari, Hou Hanru, Ute Meta Bauer, David Byrne, Janine Antoni, Kerry James Marshall, Jean-Hubert Martin are but some of the individuals who have shown or spoken at apexart.

Please check the apexart calender for event listings beyond normal gallery hours.


apex invites all school groups to visit apexart during any exhibition. Exhibition brochures can be made available to teachers ahead of time and offer a discussion by an apexart staff member for all visiting groups.
