More than just a prefix. re- is an approach. A perspective. re- is a meeting point. re- glances back while moving forward. re- represents not only a return but also a re-imagining.
Refest is a 3-day art and technology festival that celebrates the convergence of new and old, digital and analog, near and far. The artists featured in Refest are those who are breaking open possibilities through their practice. Creators working across a broad range of technologically informed media will gather at CultureHub in New York City to share video, performance, music, and more. Refest invites artists to share how they are reforming, rebuilding, reiterating, and renewing ideas.
