Still from Phytoplastic, by Ellie Irons

The next Synthetic Zero event at BronxArtSpace is co-curated by Mitsu Hadeishi and Jo Q. Nelson. The show includes performance, experimental video, music, video installations, visual art and sculpture.

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.
