?!: New Works

Welcome to ?!:New Works! (?! is pronounced ‘Interrobang’)

?!:New Works is a yearly multi-week festival of 1-20 minute new works in all mediums featuring your most brilliant/disastrous ideas.

The spiritual successor to The Exponential Festival, ?!:New Works features a veritable slew of experiment(al)(ing) artists from a variety of disciplines presenting brand new work. Working it out. With each other. With you. All within a few weeks.

Applications for 2024 are open now!

Artists present 1-20 minute-long pieces on a split bill. No split bill is the same. Each piece has 1-2 performances during the festival. 

Tech time is typically 1-4 hours. Simpler is better. Easy on, easy off. Think creative and ambitious pop up. Artists must be able to work together and make things happen!

The Brick team provides a board op, box office staff, and one person helping with transitions between pieces.

Curated by The Brick Curation Team.

Hosted by Garlan Jude and other dear friends of The Brick.

Applications open September 8, 2023 and close October 8, 2023. All applications will be reviewed in October and artists will be notified soon after. 

Performances for ?!: New Works will take place in April 2024.

?!:New Works is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
