The Bike-In: A Night of Video Art

19 August 2012

To launch our new Education and Outreach programming, Ballroom Marfa presents “The Bike-In: A Night of Video Art,” in which a selection of short films from Artists’ Film International will be screened in Ballroom Marfa’s outdoor courtyard on 19 August at 9 pm. The feature presentation is the North American selection by Ballroom Marfa’s associate curator Erin Kimmel entitled, I could be anybody, I could be somebody., by L.A. based artist Dan Finsel.
