New Genre Arts Festival 2018 will feature sixteen contemporary artworks from local, regional, national, and international artists on March 2nd and 3rd from 5-9pm. Participating artists will hold a panel discussion on March 3rd, from 1-3pm and artist-led workshops will occur on March 4th. The New Genre Artist Engagement Dinner on March 1st at 7pm brings together participating artists and patrons for a creative meal prepared by local chefs within an immersive installation designed by Austin, TX, video artist Bug Davidson.

The New Genre Arts Festival showcases local, regional, national, and international performance artists together in order to elevate conversation about performance art and contemporary artistic practice. Viewers will witness a variety of performance art strategies and styles, reflecting the unique history and practice of the medium through a focus on physical expression and transformation of material through time and space. Artists who consider timely issues, subjective experience, new technologies, and social conditions encourage audiences to reimagine personal and collective experience evolving through temporal spatiality.
