Expense/ Potential Commission

The production fee and shipping costs of the exhibited works are borne by the artists. Artwork insurance is recommended.

 

Although we do not make a profit through exhibitions. However, in order to ensure the sustainability of this project, we will charge 20,000 yen for each exhibiting artist(or artist collectives), for balancing the cost that happens in the curatorial process.

 

For those who based in Tokyo and can install/uninstall their works by themselves, the exhibiting fee is 10,000 yen.

 

The money will be used to pay the venue costs, printouts(flyers and artwork labels, etc. ) and glass decals, as well as exhibition documentation/archive, online promotion, and daily staff maintenance. We help with selling works and gallery connections and personal networks. The fees we collect will also be used on the show opening night event.

For work sales during the exhibition, we will take a 30% commission from the full retail price. 

Long term consignment is possible.

We may close this open call once the spots filled.
