All Day

Join us for our annual survey of culture through the lens of interdisciplinary practice with an exhibition, artist presentations, conversation, and workshops — now accessible online around the world.

Gray Area Festival

Now in its 6th year, Gray Area Festival departs from its focus on experiential exhibitions into an exploration of artists working in Radical Simulation — using immersive worldbuilding to reimagine adjacent possible presents through themes of embodiment, social justice, identity, decolonialism, and regenerative ecology.

In this unique online festival, experience artists presentations from within virtual worlds, and engage with a global community bringing together diverse backgrounds and perspectives to engage creatively with the critical issues facing our rapidly evolving reality.
