BERLIN ART LINK Day & Night Exhibition at Sur la Montagne, Berlin

On May 19, BERLIN ART LINK (BAL) launches the “Night & Day” Series, extending its international contemporary art platform into the Sur la Montagne project room on Torstrasse. The new series presents emerging artists from Berlin and abroad for a one-night opening and one-day exhibition, offers another dimension of engagement to the work of artists and curators that BAL has collaborated with or featured on its website. The inaugural show will present the work of Elizabeth Delfs.
Originally from Australia, Delfs will show a series of recent works, including a large-scale textile wall installation and hanging sculptures falling into the space of SlaM in a two-day exhibition. Her practice explores the nature of constructed space and how perceptions of the environment are built through utilizing architecture and garment construction to investigate their shared theoretical and production strategies.
BERLIN ART LINK’s “Night & Day” series will showcase cross-over artists that work within the fields of visual art, architecture, design and fashion.
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 19; 7 – 11pm

Besides art exhibitions and their A.I.R. program, they host a variety of cultural events such as readings, debates and poetry slams. In addition, the space periodically transforms into other settings, such as a shop, a restaurant, a club, or even a hotel. SlaM’s internationally recognized hotel concept, Hotel Minimal by Herresthal und Kadel, a bed and breakfast in the SlaM storefront, a space that is both an installation and a living space, was a pre-stage and the origin of the upcoming A.I.R. program.
