This month marks the birth of Char Basel, a spin-off experience of the international exhibit Art Basel.
Char Basel serves as a platform to bridge the conceptual creatives with the native community of Charlotte, NC. The launch party is being held on April 16th, 2016 from 12-4pm as a taste to the upcoming presentation this fall;
Charlotte Stories met up with co-founders Ivan and Surf to find out more about what Char Basel is;
Char Basel is a calling to art collectors, creatives, appreciators, and students who are seeking a vibrant atmosphere to engage in an artistic quest. This innovative notion challenges the idea of art formality and etiquette as an effort to return our attention to raw inspiration, talent, and insight. Expect to see a few of these featured artists at the launch: Korey Mac, Ivan Mendez, Dyshon Whidbee, Manny Handsome, KuPOV, Brittani George, Christopher Taylor, and Surf Mitchell and a few of our accompanying brands such as: Charlotte Stories, PBR, illGlory and many more!
