Zero1 Biennial showcases artworks at the intersection of art and technology of national and international artists, running September 12 through December 8, 2012. With the hub at the Zero1 Garage in San Jose, the biennial includes curated exhibitions, public art installations, performances, and speaker events all over Silicon Valley.
Taking advantage of its location and thus its network in the Silicon Valley, Zero1 manages to bring together the most innovative technology companies with artists from all over the world, among them Aram Bartholl, founder of the Dead Drops Project, interaction designer and artist Daniel Schwartz with his Silicon Valley Karaoke 1.0, and American artist Robert Whitman, best known for creating non-narrative theater works – to name just three of many. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, eBay Inc and many Bay Area museums and art institutes are among the long list of partners for this event.
What makes the event original and inspiring for all, contemporary art fans or not, is its focus on innovation. In fact the exhibition questions how art impacts, shapes and criticizes innovation and technology rather than creating the most technological artworks.
The video GoZero1 was shot during the opening night and shows a very small part of the Biennial with interviews with Zero1, participating artists and partners. Intended only as a teaser, you’ll have to go out and see this exceptional art show event for yourself!
