Exhibid Artist Exhibition Fund

What is the Exhibid Exhibition Fund?

The Exhibid Exhibition Fund, also known as the Exhibid Fund, is a socially-responsible marketing effort by Underculture Contemporary to promote its novel game-changing art app: Exhibid.

The purpose of the fund is to make small financial contributions (R 1,500) towards visual artists wishing to exhibit anywhere in South Africa.

We know that mounting an exhibition is expensive! There are framing costs, venue hire, opening wine, labels, hanging materials, extra hands, and a whole host of expenses most non-artist are unaware of! And this is Underculture and Exhibid’s way of helping out. All we ask in return is a little help in spreading the word about Exhibid.

Who is eligible?

In order to be eligible for a contribution to your upcoming exhibition, you must:

  • Be 18 years or older
  • Have a registered account with Exhibid, including valid bank account details
  • Have at least 15 active artworks with Exhibid at the time of the application
  • Have an exhibition event within 3 months of the application being made

How do I apply?

Read through the terms and conditions, and then fill in the form here.

What can I spend the money on?

Once you’ve been paid out, you can spend it on anything provided that is covers the actual costs and expenditure related to your exhibition, such as venue rental, opening night refreshments, marketing and advertising, framing, labels, hanging supplies, etc.

Proof of expenditure may be requested, and must be provided.

What do you need from me?

All we need from you is to display the marketing material as provided by Exhibid, such as feathers, posters, or T-shirt, and include the Exhibid logo on any marketing material, such as invitations. We would also need you to tag Exhibid on social media like Facebook or Instagram (#exhibid and #exhibidfund)… Basically, just help us spread the word to other artists and art lovers!

This should be the same as the one you used to register on the mobile app.
