Without Borders Contemporary Arts Festival is dedicated to presenting a wide range of ideas focused on exploring the spaces between culture, art, science, and technology. Since 2004 the festival has focused on creative forms that utilize both technology and analog materials and processes in either production or presentation of the work.
Without Borders is presented in conjunction with the UMaine Intermedia MFA Graduate Program thesis exhibitions. It is dedicated to presenting a range of creative work being produced today by regional, national and international artists who are engaged in reexamining the nature of creative production.

The Intermedia MFA department at the University of Maine is pleased to present the 10th annual Without Borders Festival. The exhibit runs from August 9 to September 27th, 2013 in the Lord Hall Gallery and features the work of seven graduating MFA students.
The prefix Re can be applied to many words to either indicate repetition, such as in regenerate, or to indicate a backward motion, such as in retrace. We embrace both. Though our creative engagements vary widely, spanning video, audio, performance, installation, found objects and interactive technologies, we share a similarity of process. In the end, each of us have forged our own parallel practices, between research and response, and our curiosity keeps us in a consistent flux between the two.
