The next Synthetic Zero Event will be on November 7 and 10 at BronxArtSpace, in the South Bronx, only 20 minutes from Union Square. We're looking for visual art, performance, video, music, readings, dance and other work for the show.

The Synthetic Zero events are a series of informal, DIY-style art events focusing on high quality experimental and contemporary work in different media. We typically do not have a specific theme for each event but instead work with ideas that emerge from the interaction between submitted work and curatorial interests. By working this way, we hope the events reflect back the dialogue and practice of artists involved and create evocative encounters for the audience. In the past, a diverse set of curators has chosen work by artists from around the world, including Miranda July, Yoshi Sodeoka, Zoe Leonard, Hector Canonge, Benton Bainbridge, and many others. Prior event programs can be found here.

This event is being organized by Mitsu Hadeishi, working together with Jo Q. Nelson, the staff of BronxArtSpace, in particular co-director Linda Cunningham, and others.

Mitsu Hadeishi has been putting on art events in the New York City area since 2003, including work from artists both local to the city and from around the world. These events have featured experimental video, performance, visual art, dance, music, poetry, interactive work, and installations. He has a BA in Physics from Harvard, works with technology, and has written an art/philosophy/politics blog since 1999. He's collaborated with and has provided technology help for a number of artists including Harrell Fletcher, Miranda July, Alyse Emdur, Kenneth Mroczek, and Khaela Maricich.

Jo Q. Nelson lives and works in New York. Her work is a hybrid of built environments, fantasy proposals and collaborative projects that look at the interactions that occur in social spaces, how people relate to the spaces around them, and how spaces influence how people relate to each other. She holds a MFA in Combined Media at Hunter College, NY, NY and has shown her site-specific installations in numerous galleries, including Smack Mellon, Flux Factory, and Scaramouche Gallery, and participated in numerous residencies and festivals.
