Festival March 2nd and 3rd, with workshops during the day, and a sponsor dinner Thursday March 1st.


Two installations by Oklahoma artists: Jessica Davenport and Jordan Vinyard, and 10 national performance artists


This year, Living Arts aims to utilize the New Genre Festival as an opportunity to bring local, regional, national, and international performance artists together in order to elevate conversation around the practice and history of performance art as it related to a larger dialogue within 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 will encourage the audience to reimagine ways in which personal and collective experience evolves through temporal spatiality.


New Genre 2018 will feature multiple, simultaneous performative artwork in the Myers and West End Gallery, the Corner space, and outside on the Living Arts property on March 2nd and 3rd from 5-9pm, with educational programming including lectures, video, and panel discussions during the day on March 3rd from 12-3pm. A special sponsor dinner will commence on March 1st as an opportunity for sponsors, community members, and participating artists to meet one another within a unique installation environment.
