For the 6th edition of BLACK, MATTE expanded the immersive music + art project to a two-night orchestration of form and sound hosting over 7000 guests. Returning to Brooklyn’s Avant Gardner, Night 1’s genre-disrupting music lineup featured French electronic duo The Blaze along with Jacques Greene and OURI. Night 2 confounded expectations on the dancefloor with Guy Gerber, Mano Le Tough, DJ Seinfeld, Marie Davidson, Vaal, Kedr Livanskiy, Noah Souder-Russo, and Henri.
This year marked BLACK’s first collaboration with major art auction house Phillips, who partnered with intangible art commissioner Daata Editions to showcase cutting-edge video artists. Inspiring creativity through installation and performance art, MATTE also displayed works by Children of the Light, Glenn Kaino, Florence To, and Shohei Fujimoto.
