Sleepless Night 2009 is right around the corner and this year, Bass Museum of Art will once again be the center of activity with “Night Shift,” a collection of installations and sculptures in Collins Park from 6pm – 2am. Set to live music from artist/DJ Jerome Sans, a highlight of the exhibition is a collaborative piece titled “Viking Funeral” that is a monolithic 30-foot Nirvana “t-shirt” that can be explored from the inside out.
The Bass Museum of Art will once again be the center of activity during Sleepless Night with “Night Shift,” a group of exciting and unexpected site-specific installations and sculptures in Collins Park curated by Jerome Sans. Sans was the founder and co-director of the world-acclaimed Palais de Tokyo, the cutting-edge contemporary art center that opened in Paris in 2002. Currently he is Director of one of the first nonprofit art centers in Beijing, the Ullens Center of Contemporary Art, and is Cultural Curator for Le Meridien Group. He was co-curator of the Paris Nuit Blanche in 2006, and is also a rock musician and DJ – he’ll be providing the live soundtrack for “Night Shift.”
Participating South Florida artists include Jim Drain and Brooke O-Harra, Christy Gast, Julie Kahn, Nicolas Lobo, Ernesto Oroza & Gean Moreno, Tom Scicluna, and Frances Trombly. A very unique collaborative piece “Viking Funeral” will also be featured, that is a monolithic 30′ Nirvana “t-shirt” that can be explored from the inside out!
