Exhibitions are an organizational tool designed to supercharge curators' selling efforts. Similar to an exhibition at a gallery, Exhibitions give curators the ability to curate works across Drops, Editions, and listings on a single exhibition page and release them at a specific date and time.

These Exhibitions have their own custom allowlist and curator fee. Sellers added to the allowlist can list their NFTs, Drops, or Editions directly into the exhibition.

To create an exhibition, you’ll need to create a gallery first if you haven’t already. A gallery is where your Exhibitions live.

Once you’ve created a gallery, use your dashboard to create an exhibition. To get to your dashboard, click the Dashboard navigation at the top right corner of Foundation. You can also navigate to the gallery and then click Dashboard.

 

Exhibitions

Exhibitions are created on the Exhibitions page on your dashboard. To create an exhibition, navigate to the Exhibitions page and click + Create an exhibition. 

You’ll add the exhibition's name, start date, image, and exhibition fee here. The start date for an exhibition cannot be edited after the exhibition has been created. You will need to delete and recreate it, so please ensure the start date and time are correct before confirming.

  1. Enter the exhibition name, start date, image, and exhibition fee. The exhibition image must be no larger than 10MB and a JPG, PNG, or GIF. We recommend using a 4:5 aspect ratio (1080 x 1350) for best results.
  2. Click Next Step.
  3. Add sellers to the allowlist for the exhibition.
  4. Click Create exhibition.

Your exhibition has been created!

 

Add a story and build your exhibition

Once your exhibition has been created, you’ll be redirected to edit your exhibition and tell your story.

With just a few clicks, you can effortlessly weave together text, images, and videos to create a captivating tale that will transport your audience and give context to the set of curated artworks. By adding a story, you'll not only amplify the works in your exhibition but also leave a lasting impression on your visitors.

To make the story tab appear on your exhibition page, toggle on the Show Story tab. You can keep the Story tab hidden until you’re ready to share it.

Add text

You have the option to include various text formats in your story. Some of the different text formats that you can add include:

  • Paragraph text (1,000 characters)
  • Header 1 (1,000 characters)
  • Header 2 (1,000 characters)
  • Quotes (1,000 characters)

To add another text block after a header, press enter or return on your keyboard.
To navigate between text blocks, click your keyboard's up and down arrows.

Please remember to click the 'Save' button after making any changes to ensure that they are saved.

Add video

You can insert a YouTube video in your story. To add a YouTube video to your story tab:

  1. Copy the YouTube URL from your browser. (You’ll need to copy the direct URL from your browser, not the URL from clicking the Share button on the YouTube page.)
  2. Once you paste the link, the video should automatically populate the content block.
  3. You can resize videos to normal, large, or full width.
  4. Click save

Add image

To add an image to your story, it will need to be within these technical specs:

  • JPG, PNG, or SVG
  • 50 MB max

You can either click the image block to upload an image or drag and drop an image from your files into the image block area. You can resize all images to normal, large, or full width.

You also have the option to add another image in the same block.

To add another image to an image block:

  • Click + on the right side of the block

  • Once you click the +, the image block will split into two. You will then be able to add another image next to the current one.

04 Add image block 2.jpgAdd a caption (optional): To provide more information about your images, consider adding captions with a maximum character limit of 100.

Add an NFT/Collection

You can add any 1/1 NFT, drop, or edition to your story. However, to add an NFT or a collection to your story, it must be listed/launched in your exhibition.

  1. Click the fourth icon after the ‘Add image’ icon to add an NFT or collection.
  2. You’ll see all of your exhibition inventory. Select the item that you want in your story.
  3. That’s it!

Please note that if an item has already been added to your story, you won’t be able to add it twice.

Rearrange

To rearrange your content blocks, click the drag icon on the left side of each one and drag it to where you want it placed. Please remember to click the 'Save' button after making any changes to ensure that they are saved.

Collectors and viewers can easily switch between the Story and Works tabs to view both the exhibition's narrative and the artwork included.

You have the freedom to continually improve and edit your story in your Galleries Dashboard at your convenience to make it stand out!

Add Inventory

With Exhibitions, sellers added to the allowlist can list directly into the exhibition. When a seller lists an NFT or launches their drop or edition, they will see the available Exhibitions to list into.
