Since 2001, Zero In has focused on the strengths of the member museums in collections and programming to propose dynamic alternatives that promote institutional support and cooperation. It has embarked on numerous projects tackling parallel themes aimed at upholding and advocating each museum's unique interpretation and execution of subject matter to engage more people to appreciate culture and arts as showcased by the museum members of Zero In.
