Younger than Beyoncé | Free Exposure

Free Exposure - a BYO-art event

Help us raise $4,000 to gain FREE EXPOSURE at a popular Toronto-based international arts festival! 

For ONE NIGHT ONLY - bring your best artwork the world has never seen for some cold, hard-earned EXPOSURE! 

#hastheartistbeenpaid ? At Younger Than Beyoncé Gallery, ALWAYS.

YTB Gallery has been invited by a Toronto-based arts festival to participate in their #TURNONTHEHEARN event. This well-known summer festival will not be able to support the project financially and any technical costs that we incur with their staff will be charged back to us. In exchange for FREE EXPOSURE, we must raise funds to pay the festival's administrative, security, and cleaning fees.

Adding to that, we do not qualify for further funding through the arts councils. 

Despite these setbacks, we as a board refuse to fumble with our mandate to always, always PAY OUR ARTISTS.

In order to raise administration fees, YTB is in turn offering *you* FREE EXPOSURE in our space. Simply pay a $5 administration fee to exhibit your work.* 

***Tunes by Alana Leprich all night long***

Be sure to add this event to your CV - it's GOOD EXPOSURE!

*Additional fees may apply - $5 beer/$6 cocktails and wine

YTB welcomes all mediums and practices. We will provide the following items to facilitate your exposure: 

a limited number of plinths
fishing line
one television screen w/ USB
one small stage
dope-ass lighting rig
acres of space
