EXHIBITION OPENINGAPEXART291 Church Street, NYC, 10013
The (Self)Promotion Show
created and curated by you, the public
Wednesday, January 9, 6-8pm
on view through February 16
- Do art and TV belong in the same sentence?
- Do people lie about watching TV?
- Are commercials better than programs?
- Can apexart get creative people to make a TV commercial about them?
Yes, yes, yes and yes!
Join us on Wednesday in the apexart living room as we gather around the television, forget the writers-strike worries, and watch nothing but ads. And if you can't join us here, make sure to watch the ads online and vote for your favorite: the winner gets $1,500 and their ad aired on network TV!
apexart recently held an open call, requesting submissions of a 30-second TV commercial about us from individuals and collaborative groups. In addition to being on view as part of the living-room-style installation, the commercials are available for viewing on our website, where viewers are encouraged to visit and cast votes for their favorite.
The exhibition was conceived to examine creative practices in contemporary culture and to reconsider the current promotional model of the art world.
Please join us.
All events are open to the public and free.
Gallery hours are Tues - Sat, 11-6.
