Chimera-Project is a Budapest based program gallery. The gallery is lead by the Swiss art historian Patrick Urwyler and a Hungarian sociologist Bogi Mittich. The curators’ program is built on curated, thematic exhibitions to generate a meaningful discourse in contemporary art and to catalyze international exchange. Their selection for the Light Year program is based on their great interest in video art and their mission of generating international exchange.

About “Light Year”
The Manhattan Bridge comes alive with “Light Year,” a one-year program of projected video art presented the First Thursday of every month. In honor of the United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as The Year of Light and Light Art, “Light Year” includes a well-rounded program of video artists from around the globe. Curated, created and presented by Leo Kuelbs Collection, John Ensor Parker and Glowing Bulbs (aka 3_Search), “Light Year” reveals surprising connections and highlights Dumbo’s role as an important hub for technology and the arts.
