On December 6, 2012, Jonathan LeVine Gallery and the Miami International Film Festival hosted the World Premiere of Art 4 Space, a short film by Parisian artist INVADER, documenting a project in which he launched a mosaic into the Earth’s stratosphere.
The private event was held in conjunction with Jonathan LeVine Gallery’s program at PULSE-Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach, comprised of a solo presentation of new works by INVADER. The booth included a video projection and a site-specific installation highlighting a selection of aliases from the artist’s Miami Invasion. During the fair, the artist also released a newly published book Mission Miami as well as a new invasion guide map, both documenting the his invasion of the city of Miami.
