Biennial Exhibition at the ZERO1 Garage

Under the thematic Seeking Silicon Valley, the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial proposes that contemporary art practice can re-imagine the idea, the place, and the experience of Silicon Valley. However, the ZERO1 Biennial is not only about the geographical region of Silicon Valley; it’s about investigating how the process of seeking can create a platform for creativity and experimentation centered in Silicon Valley while inviting contributions from around the world.


ZERO1’s Biennial exhibition, also titled Seeking Silicon Valley, will remain on display at the ZERO1 Garage from September 12 - December 8, 2012 and will serve as the network hub for all Biennial programming. The exhibition features the work of 24 artists representing 11 different countires.


Reflecting the networked nature of Silicon Valley, the exhibition structure experiments with a networked model of collaborative curation. The curatorial team includes Jaime Austin (ZERO1’s Curator and Director of Programs) as Lead Curator, and exhibition co-curators Dooeun Choi (South Korea), Gisela Domschke (Brazil), Michelle Kasprzak (Canada/the Netherlands), and Regina Möller (Germany).
