Launching the third edition of biannual video art celebration Channels Festival, Future Tense combines video, installation and new technology to create hypothetical stories and explore issues of contemporary politics, histories and national identity. Taking place at The Substation, Future Tense currently features the works of Antoinette J. Citizen, Hannah Brontë, Yael Bartana (ISR) and Rachel Mason (US) — with more artists soon to be announced.
Founded in 2012, this year's Channels Festival program features 90 Australian and international artists across 14 varied events including exhibitions, screenings, workshops and online programs. The 2017 festival's theme 'futures' invites a range of experimental and innovative artists to "explore the uncharted territory of histories yet to be established".
Future Tense is open from Friday, September 1 until Saturday, October 28 at Newport's The Substation.
