Jan 22 and 23, SF (Dogpatch): ECOTONES at lowerdeck


lowerdeck Gallery features Ecotones – A Painted Windows Event

Where: 2295 3rd Street, San Francisco CA 94107 (Dogpatch)

When: January 22nd and 23rd (Friday and Saturday) two performances

Time: Festivities start at 8pm and go until they end

Painted Windows presents Ecotones, a curatorial collaboration between painters, filmmakers, writers and musicians revolving around the fleeting, ever-changing notion of home. An all-immersive environment sprung from a collage of individual takes, the exhibition will approach the idea of natural habitat through sculpture, painting, interactive installations, live music, language, diverse performances, and unique beverages. From Christy Chan’s films of insurgent wild life reclaiming Marin’s defunct military bases to Sonya Genel’s multi-layered paintings to a bathroom full of stuffed animals to a “shitty house,” Ecotones will present a latticework of fantastical wilderness and urban mythology.
