Transhift is a time-based new media art festival. This juried two-day festival will occur at several venues in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee. The first of its kind in Knoxville, this event will involve galleries and public spaces. The viewers’ experience will be framed by their transit from one piece to another – through downtown.

  • video art
  • animation
  • sound art.
