NEW GENRE SPONSORSHIP LEVELS:
THE MOST NATIONAL ATTENTION TO LIVING ARTS
New Genre grew from a direct need that Tulsa had to host a festival that presents nothing but contemporary art forms, which are fresh and new i.e., performance art, new movement pieces, new music concerts, video art forms, installation artworks and the kind of work, which does not have any categories! We utilize several venues in Tulsa to accommodate the needs of the artist and have caught the attention of the Andy Warhol Foundation and NPN as a result of our leadership in this region of the country. In addition to the presentations by these history-in-the-making artists, we also ask them to conduct an education program – either a talk, a workshop or a residency – thus giving back to the Tulsa area something more lasting than simply a performance or an installation. It fulfills our mission by helping present contemporary art in youth and adults.
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.
