Call for entries: March Synthetic Zero Event

  • Deadline:
    Feb. 9, 2014, noon
  • Location:
    BronxArtSpace, 305 E. 140th St #1A, Bronx, New York, 10454


The next Synthetic Zero Event will be on March 5 and 7, 2014 at BronxArtSpace, 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.
