Since 2006, H BOX has commissioned four artists annually to produce single-channel works in video. A changing selection of eight to ten of those works has been presented since late 2007 in a roaming screening hall designed by Paris-based architect/artist Didier Fiuza Faustino. The New Museum’s “out of the box” presentation of H BOX marks the first time that all sixteen H BOX films will be presented together.

The H BOX is a program of Fondation d’entreprise Hermès

Curator: Benjamin Weil
