New Frontier has a new venue this year. Instead of being on Main Street, the installation portion of Sundance has moved to historic Miners Hospital on Park Avenue, which is totally walkable from Main Street. This afternoon I found myself with a free moment and decided to check out the new location and expanded selection of installations that include art, film, technology, and performances. When I arrived at the new location I was pleasantly surprised to see a food truck and coffee stand. Apparently, even Sundance can’t escape the ubiquitous food truck. While I am a fan of the convenience of the food truck, 15 years ago when my dad and I were eating from a taco truck parked at our local gas station I would not have anticipated that food trucks would take the hipster world by storm. Anyway, I was very excited to see James Franco’s multimedia installation Three’s Company: The Drama. As long time readers know, I will see anything the ever prolific James Franco does. As a fellow feminist, I was impressed by the transmedia documentary Raw/War by Lynn Hershman Leeson, and am hoping to see her documentary film !Women Art Revolution this weekend.
And the best part of New Frontier? No tickets required. Each day 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. anyone can see the installations, building capacity withstanding. As I continue to battle the waitlist lines (per usual, the waitlist is winning), just walking into New Frontier today was a welcome respite.
