We are back! .Zip will be returning to New York City in its Early Access Edition. This time, we’ve changed the theme from ‘digital formats’ to a more immediate concept: ‘the life cycle of an app.’ It has become impossible to survive in the modern world without apps: we use apps to order food, watch television, and even find babysitters for our dogs!
So for our latest season of .Zip, we’ve decided to roll out our program like an app development process. Our curating logic for this season is based on traditional software development processes and release cycles. Releasing multiple “versions” of an app helps developers to gradually add features and components based on user feedback. We thought this process perfectly fit the evolving, responsive nature of “.Zip Season 2” : a digital immersive media art show.
We are excited to announce that the Pre-Alpha version of “.Zip: DEVELOPING THE FUTURE Season 2.0.0[Early Access Edition]” will open on June 30th 2018 at 3LD Art and Technology Center. We are thrilled that four artist groups from the previous exhibition : Caoyuxi(JAMES), Gan Jian, Loga & Mao Wengweng, Pink Money + Lawrence Law will return with brand new work! We are also super hyped to announce several new players in the team: Pasakorn Nontananandh, aka Akaliko, Jason Batchllor, Victor Morales, Marpi and Bent Stamnes, Sehyun Av Kim & Nick Bratton, Qi Zhenzhen & Wang Yang. More details about these artists will be released later this week!
Since the exhibition is structured like an app versioning process, we also have a dynamic line of artists for our next cycle this July. We will update the exhibition with new content each weekend, which means every week you come to the exhibition, you will experience some new art! Artists like Hans Tammen, Quan Xiao, Nate Turley, Christian Hannon , Fallen Atom, Ricardo Romaneiro and other secret artists will join us inside the Art Developers team.
Additionally, we will also host a series of special evening events “UNCOMPRESSED VOL.X” in the exhibition space with other talented emerging artists. Stay tuned on our facebook page and instagram @3ldnyc for further details.
Thank you so much for your continuing support. Every ticket helps us support groundbreaking new work. We are so grateful to everyone who has visited the exhibition and shared their experience. Please contact us on facebook or instagram if you have further questions about the “.Zip: DEVELOPING THE FUTURE Season 2.0.0[Early Access Edition]”. We look forward to seeing you at 3LD!
