Now in its 6th year, Gray Area Festival expands beyond 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 artist presentations from within virtual worlds, and engage with a global community bringing together diverse backgrounds and perspectives to creatively address the critical issues facing our rapidly evolving reality.
Radical: (adj) relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough
