Come have a light brunch on us with the global network of curators and learn more about this amazing journey- the shaping and curation of the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial.
Where: The Tech Museum
When: Saturday September 15th
Time: 11:00am - 12:30pm
Reflecting the networked nature of Silicon Valley, this year’s Biennial exhibition structure experiments with a networked model of collaborative curation. By doing so, it offers a new way to approach an international biennial through the collaborative lens, allowing both breadth and uniformity under the common theme of Seeking Silicon Valley. The curator panel will feature the five 2012 ZERO1 Biennial exhibition curators—Jaime Austin, Dooeun Choi, Gisela Domschke, Michelle Kasprzak, and Regina Möeller—as they discuss the results of their collaboration.
A special component will be a keynote talk by media critic Bruce Sterling. His theories provide additional context for the projects being commissioned and presented, not only for the greater art and technology community, but also among academic communities who are at the forefront of theory and criticism in the field. Bruce Sterling was a natural choice for this year’s keynote speech based on the influence his work has had on many of the artists and curators. It is especially poignant to invite Sterling, in context of this year’s thematic, Seeking Silicon Valley. His writing on The New Aesthetic—which is based on the notion of seeing virtual tropes and imagery realized in the real world—itself speaks to a form of seeking or imagining a world that exists more as an idea than a physical reality.
