BRING IT! Performance Art Series with Miwa Matreyek

Internationally recognized animator, designer, and multimedia artist, Miwa Matreyek, opened the BRING IT! Performance Art Series with her live performance on June 25th.

Based in Los Angeles, Matreyek creates animated short films that integrate animation, performance, and video installation. Arriving to animation from a background in collage, her work explores how animation transforms when it is combined with body, both physically in her performance pieces, as well as a composited video element in her short films. She is interested in the slippery meeting point of cinema and theater/ performance, the moments of convergence where fantastical illusions are created, and the moments of divergence where the two struggle against each other. 

ZERO1 holds space in China at thingworld: International Triennial of New Media Art

It has been exciting to participate in thingworld: International Triennial of New Media Art 2014, at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing.  As the third edition, “thingworld: International Triennial of New Media Art 2014” follows the internationally acclaimed Olympic Cultural Project “Synthetic Times: Media Art China 2008” and “transLife: International Triennial of New Media Art”, which was officially instituted as a triennial of new media art at the National Art Museum of China in 2011. It has been an honor for ZERO1 to participate not only in bringing amazing art to the Triennial through artists Karolina Sobecka and Chris Baker, but also help shape and define the formation of the Triennial as our ED was on the advisory committee.

Apply now for the American Arts Incubator Program!

ZERO1 is calling innovative digital and mural artists with a passion for community-driven art and an interest in international travel to apply to participate in the American Arts Incubator. American Arts Incubator is an international arts exchange program being developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). The program sends artists abroad to collaborate with youth and underserved populations on community-based new media and mural art projects that bolster local economies, address a local social issue, and further social innovation. Artists will be working directly with ZERO1, U.S. embassy officials, and overseas partners to realize a series of public art projects that cultivate individual and community engagement and citizenship internationally.
