BERLIN ART LINK’s Night & Day series showcases outstanding international cross-disciplinary artists and curators working accross the fields of visual art, technology, architecture, design, music and fashion for one night/one day exhibitions. The series offer another dimension of engagement with the work of artists and curators that BAL has collaborated with or featured on its website.
In addition to curating exhibitions and organizing the gallery spaces, BAL Production’s also designed, coordinated and distributed the communications and social media for all events, sent to our extensive network of national and international professional contacts. BAL Productions also provided full-documentation of all the exhibitions including photographs and catalogue texts.

For the first time on BerlinArtLink.com, we featured a live-stream video of the exhibition throughout the duration of the show. Whether or not our readership was able to be in Berlin for the opening, they were able to get an up-close-and-personal experience of the show.
Our third Night & Day exhibition presented the collaboration of international artists Eva Maria Salvador (Switzerland) and
