Sundance sets New Frontier installation at fest

Sixth year of art-focused programming is held at the Yard

The Sundance Institute has announced the artists and installations to be featured Sundance Film Fest’s New Frontier creative space. This year’s exhibit, entitled “Future Normal,” showcases multimedia performances and also features panel discussions on the convergence of art, technology and storytelling.

Installations include projects such as “Hunger in Los Angeles,” “Question Bridge: Black Males” and “Radical Games Against the Tyranny of Entertainment.” Artist performances to be featured at New Frontier include “Abacus” by Paul Abacus, Early Morning Opera and Lars Jan, and “Himalaya Song” by Gingger Shankar, Mridu Chandra and The Shanghai Restoration Project.

The 2012 fest marks the sixth year of New Frontier. Sundance prez Robert Redford dubs the exhibit “the next generation of artistic expression…our hope is that its exploration of the critical issues of our time inspires people to consider what storytelling might look and feel like decades from now.”

Showcase will be open at the Sundance Film Fest from January 20-28, with free admission, at the Yard (1251 Kearns Blvd.) in Park City. After the fest, New Frontier will remain open through May 19.
