NUIT BLANCHE VIDEO
On Saturday 12 October 2013 from 7pm - 3am, Nuit Blanche Video 2013 will take place for the first time across galleries in Central London. Over the course of an evening, members of the public will be able to view the exhibited works of French video artists in the windows of some of the British capital’s best-known art galleries.
Kashya Hildebrand is proud to join leading London galleries and will be presenting Ange Leccia’s ‘La Mer’. Comments gallery founder Hildebrand: "I am delighted to take part in the inaugural London Nuit Blanche, which provides a wonderful platform for intercultural exchange between France and the UK. Ange Leccia’s ‘La Mer’ presents a beautiful aquatic landscape in a contemporary setting, which is very much in line with the direction of the gallery. I love the concept of Nuit Blanche as it brings new energy to the Fitzrovia area, and we hope to participate in further initiatives such as this in the future."
Leccia and Kashya Hildebrand will be joining works by artists including Arnaud Dezoteux, Pierre Huyghe, Sophie Calle, Cyprien Gaillard and Ivan Argote at galleries like The Photographer’s Gallery, White Cube, Marlborough Contemporary, Sprüth Magers and Victoria Miro’s new Mayfair space.
The public will be able to map the city walking from one gallery to the next with the chance to discover the French contemporary video art scene. Nuit Blanche Video originally came to life in the French capital and has already proven to be a successful part of Paris’ annual dusk-til-dawn arts festival Nuit Blanche.
"We are thrilled to be able to bring Nuit Blanche Video to London. Our aim is to create a reciprocal arrangement with Parisian galleries and exhibit the works of British artists next year so as to strengthen cultural ties between the two cities," say Marie Shek, Yasmine Datnow and Maïa Morgensztern, the organisers behind Nuit Blanche Video 2013.
