6PM YOUR LOCAL TIME (6PM YLT) is a networked, distributed, one night contemporary art event taking place simultaneously in different locations, coordinated from one central venue and documented online via a web application. After a beta test successfully organized in the United Kingdom in October 2014, the format will show its full potential on July 22, when 200+ participants from 4 different time zones will open their exhibit at the same time, documenting them in real time on the web platform 6pmyourlocaltime.com, the event’s primary venue. Curated by Fabio Paris, the event will be orchestrated by a team of collaborators from a temporary office installed in the fascinating location provided by the Castle of Brescia, where the flow of images and videos from all over Europe will be displayed in front of the audience of the MusicalZOO Festival, the local partner of the event.
Along the upcoming months, the Link Art Center will work on sending out invitations and on finalizing the list of participants. The staff will be available to evaluate proposals from institutions, galleries and artists interested in the event, and to reply questions and requests unanswered by the information already available on the website 6pmyourlocaltime.com.
6PM Your Local Time is a format by the Link Art Center, developed in collaboration with Abandon Normal Devices (AND), Manchester and Gummy Industries, Brescia.
