The 2012 ZERO1 Biennial, A Successful Run

The 2012 ZERO1 Biennial, A Successful Run

The 2012 ZERO1 Biennial has officially come to an end, and here at ZERO1. We wrapped up the Biennial this past weekend with over 250 people visiting the exhibition one last time on Friday night and then on Saturday, hosting two amazing panels with SPUR, Stamen Design and Institute for the Future, followed by our closing reception to celebrate the conclusion of the Biennial with partners, artists, and friends. 

By all accounts, this year's Biennial was a huge success. Centered in San Jose, the ZERO1 Biennial represented a significant place-making opportunity that galvanized community engagement through collaboration and partnerships not otherwise possible.  It allowed for the presentation of groundbreaking work by local and international artists and provided access to innovative, world-class art for an audience interested in the sandbox where art and technology meet. Attendees of the Biennial experienced public art, interactive digital media, performances, and much more!

This year’s Biennial re-imagined the idea, the place, and the experience of Silicon Valley under the thematic of Seeking Silicon Valley. Using Silicon Valley as a physical backdrop, the exhibitions, performances, events, public art, and installations in the Biennial transformed a region synonymous with technology into a publicly accessible network of activity, exploration, and provocation. We invited over 150 artists from 13 countries to present works at the forefront of media art – collaborating with local, regional, national and international cultural institutions. Here at ZERO1, we couldn't be more pleased with the success of this year's Biennial.

We hoped you enjoyed the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial and will join us for an exciting 2013 at the ZERO1 Garage!
