I stopped by the opening Nov 12th and was truly mesmerized by the transformation of the interior. The following photos do not do this highly immersive space justice. If you will be in San Francisco, I highly encourage you to visit the gallery and experience this unique installation.
Walking through the space felt like stumbling upon a mysterious treehouse deep in a magical forrest. It was overfull with a pleasing balance of emotional spaces – both comforting and carefree, as well as, engaging and ritualistic. Both adults and children alike were drawn into the beauty and the hundreds of exquisite details.
The space is so immersive, that the vast selection of new art created by the artists seamlessly exists within the space. But do not loose sight of these complex and beautiful pieces. Even without this lush setting, each of these would stand out.
The LoPo Gallery blog also has an in-depth interview by Kate Bieschke with Bunnie Reiss and Monica Canilao that is well worth reading.
Also showing at Space Gallery (in the same building) Ezra Li Esmont‘s Show, Now! I Lay Me Down To Sleep. The show will be on display though January 7th. I reviewed this show here. There will be a soft reopening on Dec 2nd and the first 100 guest will receive a free print. Please visit the Facebook Event Page for more information.
