ZER01, organizers of 01SJ, a Global Festival of Art on the Edge, has announced plans for its second biennial festival, June 4-8. 01SJ will feature transformative and provocative new works from world-renowned artists and performers at the cross-section of contemporary art, technology, and culture. The five-day Festival includes exhibitions, films, concerts, performances, and nightlife occurring throughout downtown San Joseâ€™s parks, public streets, museums, theaters, and clubs.
01SJ is North Americaâ€™s newest and largest festival of digital arts. From a hip-hop, multi-media meditation on Antarctica to robot art, from conversations with artificial intelligence to operatic performances of Google headlines about the environment, from avant-garde cinema to new musical forms â€“ more than 100 projects will be featured at 01SJ. Festival organizers expect it to be a perspective-altering experience that entertains, enlightens, educates, and involves attendees in a new understanding of our changing world.
Of the artists participating in 01SJ, several have recently been featured in the New Frontier program at the Sundance Film Festival, while others have garnered major national and international awards.
