press release

Portraits of two of today's most provocative artists bring contemporary art to the big screen, in Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, and Marina Abramović: The Artist is Present. Cinematic media installations, multimedia performances, and transmedia experiences are found in the Festival's New Frontier program. Presenting work of artists, journalists, game designers, and media scientists, New Frontier 2012 explores the integration of human forms with the techno-sphere and ushers in a media environment of the future that nourishes the cornerstones of our humanity—our social nature, vulnerability, and creativity.

New Frontier 2012 opens on January 20, 2012. The exhibit runs in Park City, Utah through January 28 and at the Salt Lake City Art Center through May 19.
