Broadcast via three Jumbrotron monitors in New York City’s Time Square, the Babelgum Metropolis Art Prize will host a free public screening this evening of finalist entries from their competition, an international search for the best and edgiest artists. Kick off will begin at 7PM with Isabella Rossellini, the actress and video artist who served as a judge for the competition. In a rare, public appearance, she will premiere a new short video. Launched in September of this year, the Babelgum Metropolis Art Prize committee sought video submissions of no more than 5 minutes in length, representing the work of artists working in any medium, from performance art, painting and photography to sculpture, installation and new media.
