Ping Pong is an independent exhibition project for contemporary art founded in 2007 to cultivate Artistic exchange between Basel, Miami and Los Angeles.
This allows collaboration between the artists, as well as the realization of site specific works in the actual location. Artists working with similar techniques and materials or with roots in the same cultural and political backgrounds are chosen and paired off with the counterparts from another city.
The project documents, explores and stimulates the artistic endeavors of the cities. Ping Pong is presented during the ART Basel and the ART Basel Miami Beach as well as in Los Angeles at the LAAA exhibition space.
