Yesterday marks the opening of our building in Civic Center exactly 10 years ago. Before the major move, we were in Golden Gate Park for decades. Here in the heart of the city, 10 crazy years have flown right by. *Thank you* for being a crucial part of this memorable decade. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Here’s a goofy video we made on the fly with the Lost Warrior. We have countless memories, so this is more like a taste than a definitive list. (this video was originally paired with Hall & Oates’ “You Make My Dreams Come True” — but alas, we could not post that on YouTube. So try to watch this while playing that song!)
Thanks everyone. ♥
Two years ago SF partied hard with the World Series Parade, which ended up in our neighborhood. We had quite a view, with revelers on our door steps. We’re looking forward to celebrating again this Wednesday. Cheers, San Francisco.
Happy Pride, y’all. The celebration is right outside our doors, did you know? Come out tomorrow and Sunday and say hi. We’ll be near the bright red lotus flower in Civic Center, wearing or lotus flower t-shirts.
Say hi, show us some love, and get a discounted ticket to see Phantoms of Asia.
And of course, all weekend you can get into the museum for JUST $5.
A scene from our Phantoms exhibition. Love this room, and love the way people interact with it.
Heman Chong imagines a future of dystopian stillness with Calendars (2020–2096), an installation of 1001 photos, each a calendar page capturing a moment of complete emptiness in today’s bustling areas of Singapore. “These spaces intrigue me on a structural and emotional level,” he says. “I know they are so susceptible to change, to every sway of policy, to every new wave.” In other works for Phantoms of Asia, Chong’s site-specific installations are a meditative interaction with the gallery space, applying thousands of original stickers into geometric shapes that may be found in nature, atomic structures, or cosmic symbols.
