OUTDOOR SCREENING VENUE
At the garden of the Christoph Merian Foundation in Basel
(in case of rain, our screening partner was the Basler Papiermühle Schweizerisches Museum für Papier, Schrift und Druck)
As part of White Frame’s (WF) ongoing commitment to the presentation of video art, WF presented The Nightlight Screenings, two curated video art mixed programs that explored more recent works from Swiss and international artists. The event took place on August 19th at the Garden of the Christoph Merian Foundation across from the new building of the Kunstmuseum Basel. Grill & Bar opens at 20:00.
This new initiative aimed to draw a more focused attention to video art works to a broader public and to simultaneously foster international exchanges for our Swiss productions. Two thousand sixteen guest curator, Tasja Langenbach, artistic director of Videonale Bonn co-curated the program with Chantal Molleur, co-founder/director and curator of White Frame. The entry was free for the event.
This project was made possible thanks to financial support from the Christoph Merian Stiftung, Swisslos-Fonds Basel-Stadt und Mary & Ewald E. Bertschmann-Stiftung
