apexart is a not-for-profit art space 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, public programs, and events. To date it has worked with over 1,500 artists from around the world in its exhibition and residency programs. 2013 marked the publication of apexart's fourth book, Life Between Borders: The Nomadic Life of Curators and Artists, a collection of essays on the nomadic nature of participants in the art world.
apexart has exhibited over 190 exhibitions and hosted over 130 residencies.
