The NARS Foundation Juried Solo Exhibition Program 2012

The NARS Juried Solo Exhibition Program provides emerging and underrepresented national and international artists with the opportunity to present a solo exhibition at the NARS Gallery in New York.

The NARS Juried Solo Exhibition Program strives to present the most innovative and compelling artwork being produced today.

The aim of the program is to foster new dialogue and to create a forum for young artists to experiment and exchange ideas with a wider audience. An exhibition will be scheduled between the months of March to April 2012.


Select your best artwork and submit it together with a proposal and supporting materials.

The artist must present a strong cohesive body of work produced within the last five years. If accepted, only the artwork included in the proposal will be considered for the exhibition.


The program provides one selected artist with space, curatorial and administrative support for a solo exhibition. An exhibition will be scheduled between the months of March to April 2012.

The NARS Foundation will provide insurance for the artwork during the term of the exhibition and administrative support including: postcard invitations, email invites, public relations, and promotion. An opening reception with an artist talk will also be arranged for the exhibition.
