Vision Quest, presented by Tempe Museum of Contemporary Art and curated by Jill Marie Mason and Caroline Battle, will be a seminal exhibition seeking to define the future vision of contemporary art. In addition to the aforementioned task, Vision Quest will examine today’s mediated art experience. To serve this purpose, actual artwork will not be exhibited. Instead, images of artwork by a cutting edge cohort will be projected in an immersive, multimedia environment that will serve as the location of a vision quest for the viewer.
