PONY EXPRESS: WORLD BUILDING FOR WEIRD TIMES
3PM - 4PM, SATURDAY 13 FEBRUARY 2021

New Annual Festival’s Artists-In-Residence Pony Express (Loren Kronemyer and Ian Sinclair) are collaborating on Epoch Wars, a large-scale, immersive project premiering at the second New Annual in November 2021.

Epoch Wars is a live artwork camouflaged as a Festival Of Ideas, where audiences gather to name the Earth’s next geological age. Epoch Wars asks, what is the name of a future worth fighting for?

Join Pony Express as they discuss their past works, share their process of building the world of Epoch Wars, and speak with experimental artists Emma Maye Gibson (Betty Grumble), Dale Collier, BLECK and Tallulah Brown about queer, ecological, socially engaged, collaborative, and time-based ways of making in the era of the 'Permaweird'.
