MAY 2018 AND PRVT VW IS OPENING
Prvt Wv is a new gallery model that extends beyond the confines of the White Box. Set in an old-school loft, it is a multi-discipline outpost for exhibitions, lectures, showcases and special projects. The space is owned by Swiss-American, interdisciplinary artist Madeleine Paternot and was conceptualized through her long partnership with Artist Liaison and its director Alaina Simone.
Private View is as an extension of the free and open-air environment that reflects Verbier 3-D Sculpture Park and Residency that Paternot co-founded in Switzerland with Swiss-American artist, Kiki Thompson in 2011.
It aims to provide a new type of program platform that encourages social engagement and experimentation within contemporary art and tangential practices by partnering with an international community of artists, galleries, institutions and residencies.
