Aktionsart is proud to announce the BLACK BOX 2.0 festival highlights. The second edition of Seattle's first international art, film and technology festival includes over sixty artists exhibited in eight locations throughout the city.
BLACK BOX 2.0 takes place May 6 - June 7, 2015, during the Seattle International Film Festival. It is organized independently by Aktionsart, a new art and technology nonprofit in the Pacific Northwest. Programming is nomadic and antidisciplinary, presenting contemporary artists who expand the language of cinema. The festival is focused on experimental film, video, new media art and moving-image-based work.
BLACK BOX 2.0 is curated by Julia Fryett (Founder/ Director of Aktionsart) and Anne Couillaud (Independent Curator).
