From Sat., May 11 through Sun., Nov. 24, 2019, Basner will be representing Las Vegas on a global scale at one of the world’s most prestigious art exhibit in Venice, Italy.
Basner was hand-selected among 30 international photography artists by the Global Art Affairs Foundation, to not only display some of his finest works from his Tivoli Village-based gallery, but to provide insight on the ever-changing artistic landscape that Southern Nevada currently holds.
Basner will head to Venice ahead of the exhibition to attend preview and opening parties taking place Thursday, May 9-10. He will join other artists, collectors, gallerists and journalists for a first look of the exhibit.
WHEN: The Venice Art Biennale will take place Sat., May 11 through Sun., Nov. 24, 2019, 2019.
WHERE: The 2nd floor of the Palazzo Bembo, overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy.
WHY: Basner’s visit to the Venice Art Biennale not only showcases the talent that currently exists within our artistic landscape, but puts Southern Nevada on the map as a growing artistic and cultural epicenter.
With the Arts District, the emergence and expansion of concert halls as well as the influx of galleries that Las Vegas is seeing, Basner’s exhibition only marks a turning point for what this city is about to undergo; an artistic resurgence.
Due to the caliber of this journey, the outpouring of local support has been overwhelming, with help from big-name organizations including the Vegas Golden Knights Foundation.
