  • Scroll to view a thumbnail gallery of exhibits, and click on the exhibit title to open a listing for more information about it.
  • To refine your search, click on a link to select for the price range, space or availability in the right-hand sidebar. You may also use the search function by clicking on the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner of the page and then typing in a keyword or search term (e.g. “China” or “climate change”).

When searching the listings, you’ll discover two types of formats:

Premium listings offer a full description of an exhibition, outlining all the important features that enable a potential venue to assess if the exhibit will be a good fit for their programming needs. These listings include images, video and audio clips, fully communicating what an exhibit has to offer. The premium listing format is ideal for showcasing an exhibit that is new on the market, has good availability or a more complex story to relate.

Basic listings provide concise descriptions and key details like availability, space requirements, price range and contact info. They enable venues to quickly determine if the exhibit is appropriate and one they would like to follow up with by contacting the promoter.
