The Dark Fair, presented by Milwaukee International

This experimental miniature art fair took place without the use of natural or electric light, creating a starkly unique atmosphere for experiencing contemporary art. An international selection of galleries and artists will be displaying work custom to these conditions, using candle light, work that glows in the dark, light sculpture, film and video and unplugged performances. Visitors will be able to get lost in the work and each other in new ways in this cavernous underworld of exchange, featuring shadowy bar booths, chill-out zones, flashlights and headlamps.
