The experimental electronic event is sending out a call for proposals.
It will be the first time the global experimental festival—which started out in Montreal—has happened in the US. The San Francisco edition will be co-directed by Surefire Agency founder Miroslav Wiesner and Gabrielle de Villoutreys. The initial lineup and venues will be announced in the coming weeks, while the festival will also set up a call for submissions and proposals from US-based artists on its Facebook page.
"The intersection of art, music, and technology combined with the adaptive nature of the city, its accessible size, the concentration of ideas and its constant supply of curious travelers make San Francisco an ideal location for the first American MUTEK edition," says Wiesner. "The community needs this now more than ever as the old and the new establish their coexistence and find connections in culture and expression."
The new festival was first teased in September, when MUTEK SF graffiti tags popped up around the Bay Area. It's the latest in a series of new editions for the festival, which also launched in Dubai and Buenos Aires this year.
