LIVING ARTS OF TULSA CELEBRATES 22 YEARS OF ITS ANNUAL NEW GENRE FESTIVAL BY AGAIN BRINGING STIMULATING NEW ARTWORKS TO TULSA, OKLAHOMA.
WHAT IS NEW GENRE?
New Genre refers to non-traditional forms of art, which are experimental and fresh. The New Genre Festival presents a diverse range of artists, many of whom cross disciplinary lines, to create exciting new art works. These works push the limits of traditional media while incorporating the new media made possible by today’s technology.
LIVING ARTS MISSION:
Since 1969 Living Arts of Tulsa has been steadfast in its mission of presenting and developing contemporary art forms in Tulsa.Living Arts is interested in newly evolving ideas and concepts, in the creation of art forms, in exploring the relationship of art to other disciplines and fields of knowledge, and in sharing its interests with the community through creative workshops, performances, exhibitions, film/videos, demonstrations of current art, lectures, related educational activities and research.
Living Arts achieves its mission by fulfilling two goals: 1) To bring outside artists and works to Tulsa who are pushing their media to its limit and, 2) To present opportunities and challenges for local artists to develop and present new, exploratory works which are not normally seen in Tulsa.
There are very few contemporary arts festivals which showcase progressive, thought-provoking work around the U.S. which have continued for 22 years. Living Arts is proud to have not compromised like many of the “Fringe” Festivals that have become more of a gentrified form of a Theater Festival. And although New Genre has changed over the years, it has always prided itself on presenting the most progressive works in the U.S. that we could find. This year we are trying an experiment with the New Genre Festival. We are splitting the festival into 2 parts: one in the Spring and one part in the fall. And we are calling these Part A & B.
