The San Francisco Art Institute will soon present From the Tower: Transmission.
This is a series of video screenings curated by SFAI’s MFA Director, alumni, and dedicated faculty member Tony Labat, which will explore the institution’s history of experimental art.
Audiences will be invited to park outside of the historic 800 Chestnut Street Campus – within walking distance of the Pier 42 ferry terminal at Fisherman’s Wharf.
From here, viewers may watch from the windows of neighboring buildings, take socially distanced seats throughout the streets of North Beach, or virtually experience the live streamed projections of video, performance and experimental time based works projected on all four sides of the school’s landmark tower.
Screenings will start on Friday September 4th and air every Friday evening until October 23, 2020 with each screening starting at 9pm PST.
SFAI will release a mobile friendly map that will provide locations for optimal viewing of the work as well as links to audio tracks for each viewer to tune into the sound based elements through their individual phones.
The screenings will also be live streamed on SFAI’s website at www.sfai.edu for viewers to tune in all over the world.
