OVNi (Objectif Vidéo Nice Video Art Festival) is a video art festival that will take place from November 30th to December 4th, 2016 inside the Windsor Hotel in Nice, a French hotel renowned for its unique collection of thirty-one “Art-Rooms.”

This uncommon exhibition of video installations and projections is sponsored by Pascal Neveux, an important figure engaged in promoting video art in in the contemporary art scene. The event is open to everybody, with the aim of encouraging the dissemination of video art to the general public.

About twenty-five contemporary art spaces and museums will get together in offering a very diverse audience a chance to appreciate video art, in the both intimate and unusual context of a hotel room. By freely opening a door, visitors can easily approach this medium, which is widely used in contemporary art but still little known to wide audiences. Aside from the venue’s specificity, the participating institutions and galleries wer given a “carte blanche. The project is collaborative and was developed with entities acknowledged for their experience and expertise in the field, originating from both institutional and alternative spheres.

OVNi will provide a large panorama of contemporary art creation while contributing to showcasing the artistic influence of the French Riviera.

OVNi is a unique collaboration set in an atypical location. It represents the pleasure of being together, of welcoming others and of making video art visible in a high-quality and approachable format.

On its present 2016 edition, the festival’s focus is on Argentina; their artists are ready to take over the rooms at OVNi.
