Dark Fair

Mar 28 - Mar 29 2008

Presented by the Milwaukee International
Opening, March 28, 6 PM – 12 AM

This subversive and experimental miniature art fair will take place without the use of natural or electric light. An international selection of galleries and artists will display work custom to these conditions, using candlelight, flashlights, oil lamps, work that glows in the dark, light sculpture, battery powered film and video, and unplugged performances. In this cavernous underworld of exchange, visitors will experience art in completely new ways: featuring shadowy bar booths, dimly lit VIP chill-out zones, peddle-powered film projectors and gramophone DJ’s.

In addition to custom booths there will be space available for individual artist projects, screenings, and performances including an indoor sculpture garden.
