Art Basel Miami Beach announced the lineup for its Art Video Nights program, which will showcase 60 films and videos on a 7,000-square-foot projection wall outside the New World Center. There will be work by artists Julieta Aranda, Guy Ben-Ner, Daniel Arsham, Theaster Gates, Jesper Just, Mauricio Lupini, Rashaad Newsome, Ryan McGinley, Robin Rhode, Sam Samore, Adam Shecter and Hu Xiangqian.
Art Video will also screen, from dusk to dawn, a video of Ragnar Kjartansson’s performance Bliss, in which a group of opera singers performs the final aria of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro on a loop for 12 hours. The piece was a commission for Performa in 2011, and is being presented in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami and the New World Center.
