NAIL 2: Surrounding Area
Friday, November 14, 2008
California College of the Arts' curatorial collective, NAIL, is pleased to present a new mobile, site-specific exhibition, NAIL 2: Surrounding Area. This one-night only event will take the form of a guided walking tour through CCA's San Francisco campus and local neighborhood. The five brief stops along the tour will include local artistic and historical destinations of varying scale and structure - visible and invisible, past and present. Special guest speakers and members of NAIL will show hidden sites of cultural production in the neighborhood, from the former sandy shores of the San Francisco Bay to The Double Play, a pub near the site of the demolished Minor-League Seal Stadium.
The 5pm tour will commence at CCA's main building on 1111 8th Street and will continue for 1.5 miles ending at 16th and Bryant. Surrounding Area is designed to create a site- and time-specific interaction among the guides, audience, community and destinations. The tour will foster conversation and an exchange of information about overlooked and under-recognized places, themes, and projects of the CCA campus and surrounding neighborhood.
