2012 ZERO1 BIENNIAL "Seeking Silicon Valley"

Wed Sep 12, 2012
San Jose Downtown
Galleries, Art Festivals


Under the theme Seeking Silicon Valley, the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial will feature a diverse group of local, national, and international contemporary artists whose works will transform Silicon Valley into an epicenter for innovative art production and public experience.

Renowned globally as a hub of entrepreneurship and innovation, Silicon Valley is notoriously difficult to experience. Seeking Silicon Valley attempts to re-imagine the idea, the place, and the experience of Silicon Valley. Modeling this networked nature, the hub of the Biennial is the ZERO1 Garage located at 439 S. 1st Street in downtown San Jose’s SoFA District with a series of nodes, spokes, and access points connecting Silicon Valley and beyond—a network of international curators bringing a global perspective to the Biennial exhibition, a network of emerging artists sharing and presenting work at a downtown street festival, as well as a series of exhibitions, pop-up installations and performances presented by ZERO1 and a growing list of partnering arts institutions that will serve as Biennial access points throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
