It’s summer in San Francisco. Time to bundle up, curse the merciless winds under your breath and pretend you’re in Santa Monica. Save your weather woes for another season, though: On July 30 and August 20, YBCA will be transformed into a sizzling oasis of visual art, performance, film, music, workshops, cross-disciplinary symposia, food, drink and unfettered access to the 25+ local artists featured in our Bay Area Now 6 triennial. And save the date for your own off-site, self-curated Push Play > community art tour on Sept 17.
This is how we push play at YBCA.
Next Event: SAT, SEP 17
Push Play > Part III: Cloud Making
Workshops begin at 3pm and 5pm sharp
Stay for Big Art Group’s The People: San Francisco at 8pm around the corner at Z Space.
During the final Push Play > of the BAN6 summer, each audience member becomes a featured performer and a partner in process. Generously hosted by Joe Goode Performance Group, celebrated queer performance incubator THEOFFCENTER curates an afternoon of open-call, avant-garde performance workshops. Five teams, each guided by a lead artist, will collaboratively shape, organize, and stage the piece they create in the dynamic environment of the newly remodeled Joe Goode space. Guests may join workshops at 3pm or 5pm, with the resulting performances occurring at 5pm and 7pm, respectively.
Workshop space is limited, so please arrive early!
Special thanks: David Archuleta at the Joe Goode Performance Group and Ernesto Sopprani and all featured artist facilitators at THEOFFCENTER.
