Sundance Institute extends its celebration of the 10th anniversary of New Frontier this week with Virtual Reality: The New Frontier, running June 12 - 16 at the Walker Art Center. The presentation includes a lineup of works from the 2016 edition of New Frontier at the Sundance Film Festival along with specially selected pieces by local Minnesota artists. In the April edition of Leonardo, the Walker's Sheryl Mousley and our own Shari Frilot (New Frontier Chief Curator) shared an illustrated survey that revisits the sprawling work of New Frontier over the last 10 years. From its conception stage as a "hybrid space drawing from the art gallery scene," as Frilot describes it, to its current landscape as a hotbed for visual artists challenging the technical boundaries of cinema, the article revisits various plot points in the trajectory of New Frontier.
The Walker recently republished "New Frontier at the Sundance Film Festival: 10 Years of Changing Boundaries" in its entirety. Check out the complete article and learn more about Sundance Institute's co-presentation with the Walker.
