Screenings of artists’ films & videos
Artprojx Cinema is FREE.
This March at the SVA Theatre in Chelsea, New York, Artprojx Cinema, a new collaborative venture with The Armory Show and VOLTA NY, will screen a program of over 90 artists’ films from over 20 participating galleries alongside a public program of artists’ films from leading international arts organizations and curators.
“We are delighted to collaborate with such an outstanding quality of artists, galleries and organizations from such a diverse scope”, says David Gryn, Director of Artprojx. “Artprojx Cinema is not only an important opportunity for participating galleries and arts organizations to screen their artist’s films within the focused context of the cinema but also for the collectors, dealers, curators, artists and film enthusiasts flocking to New York during the week of The Armory Show and VOLTA NY to see an exceptional program of artists’ film.”
Feedback from participating organizations, artists and galleries indicates that Artprojx Cinema is adding a much desired kudos and credibility to screenings of artists’ films and a new and valued initiative on the NY cultural landscape. “We are passionate about creating a new buzz around the art fairs, engaging with local artists and students and enabling them to be part of the excitement in the city. The cinema is free to everyone and we want as many people to see this fantastic program,” says David Gryn.
