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.

Using Silicon Valley as a physical and virtual backdrop, the exhibitions, public art, performances, events, and installations that are part of the ZERO1 Biennial will transform a region synonymous with technology into a publicly accessible network of activity, exploration, and provocation.

As a 21st century arts nonprofit, ZERO1 works with creative minds from the fields of art, science, design, architecture, and technology to produce the ZERO1 Biennial, an international showcase of work at the nexus of art and technology.

The ZERO1 Biennial is centered in San Jose and distributed throughout Silicon Valley and the greater Bay Area.

Through curated exhibitions, public art installations, performances, and speaker events the ZERO1 Biennial presents work by a global community of innovative artists.

ZER01 plans to create a legacy of temporary and permanent works of public art that remain on display throughout the year and support the goal of San Jose/Silicon Valley.
