Still from "Blind", by Hui-Hsuan Hsu

The next Synthetic Zero event at BronxArtSpace (only 20 mins from Union Square!) will be curated by Mitsu Hadeishi. The show includes performance, experimental video, music, video installations, visual art and photography. (Please share this event on Facebook).

The Synthetic Zero events are a series of art events focusing on high quality experimental and contemporary work in different media. We don't typically specify a theme in advance for each event but instead work with ideas that emerge from the interaction between the submitted work and curatorial interests. By working this way, the events reflect back the dialogue and practice of artists involved and create evocative encounters for the audience.
