New Zero Art Space is the nonprofit visual art organization established in Yangon, Myanmar in 2008. The art Space promotes contemporary art and artists with an intention of promoting new young art spirits of the next generation. They are unique in Myanmar. The meaning of new Zero symbolizes new as the welcoming of new artists and zero represents the value of infinity.(Zero is the nature of the non-valued, yet increases into highly valued when combined with the other numbers). They aim to augment the abilities of each artist to increase their value and individual experience but they also foster cooperation amongst each other as artists to support the collective.
