The Creator’s Project Holds Monster Arts & Tech Festival Now In San Fran After Asia & Europe


VICE and Intel’s The Creators Project Invades San Francisco, holding Monster Arts and Tech Festival in the Epicenter of Innovation, showcasing performances and works from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, James Murphy, Squarepusher, David Bowie + Mick Rock + Barney Clay, United Visual Artists + Scanner, Chris Milk, The Antlers, SoSoLimited, Health, Zola Jesus, Shabazz Palaces and others.

Additionally, there will be original Studio works, screenings and workshops by groundbreaking artists, musicians, designers and filmmakers.

After hosting cultural festivals in Beijing, Sao Paulo, New York, Paris, Lyon and Seoul in 2011, The Creators Project arrives in the world’s cradle of technology and innovation. To launch its third year, the award-winning initiative transforms the historic Fort Mason site on March 17th and March 18th into a gargantuan interactive and visual two-day extravaganza, showcasing the cross-section between art and technology for tens of thousands of guests.

The two-day festival features a number of global artworks and installations, including a rendition of United Visual Artists + Scanner’s “Origin.” The striking 40-foot by 40-foot audiovisual cubic sculpture originated on the Coachella Music Festival in 2011, and was most recently featured underneath the Brooklyn Bridge at the 2011 event in New York. Additionally, Chris Milk unveils his new, interactive installation, “The Treachery of the Sanctuary,” that spans majestically over three walls of a Fort Mason establishment. Barney Clay and Mick Rock’s reinvention of David Bowie performing “Life On Mars” is also featured at the event. Finally, sprawling pieces from SoSoLimited, Quayola, Superuber, Casey Reas, Zigelbaum + Coelho, Scanner, Minha Yang, Social Print Studio + Intel Labs, and Mira Calix grace Fort Mason’s grounds.

The Creators Project launched in 2010 to empower emerging and leading artists who are pushing the boundaries of creative expression through technology.
