Artists in this exhibition:


The (Self)Promotion Show
created and curated by you, the public
with an accompanying essay by Carlo McCormick

January 9 - February 16, 2008

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. The commercials are available for viewing on a public-access site, where viewers are encouraged to visit and cast votes for their favorite. In addition, all commercials will be on view as part of an innovative living-room-style installation at apexart from January 9 to February 16, 2008. The winning entry will have their commercial aired on network TV.

The exhibition was conceived to examine creative practices in contemporary culture and to reconsider the current promotional model of the art world.

Commercials will be available for viewing and voting from this website starting January 9.
