Art that infiltrates. We will be creating site specific gifts, events, and impermanent installations that infiltrate art, wonder, hot dogs, and/or cat hair into everyday spaces. Of course, it works both ways, so feel free to infiltrate the mart.
May 19 to Aug 11, 2013
Check out this theme's CALENDAR to see what's happening.
Frankenart mart is a participatory, always in progress, crudley hewn, conceptual art-in-practice store located in the Inner Richmond district of San Francisco. The best way to learn about the mart is to come visit us, but here's the the crux of the matter:
Frankenart hosts a theme for 3 months that is open to everyone's participation and response. Art, writing, music, dance, performance, lectures, ongoing projects, food - you name it - we welcome it as long as it responds to the theme. Our themed shows grow as more people participate, collaborate, create and exchange.
For no apparent reason, we host a Hot Dog Day once a month. Here are the Hot Dog Day DATES. Reuben and Zeke, the cat emperors who rule the premises, do not cook the hot dogs.
FRANKENART MART, 515 BALBOA STREET, SAN FRANCISCO 94118
You, yes you, can come and make stuff for the theme here on site in the arterrarium anytime we're open. We've got some tools and some meager art supplies on hand for you to use, or you can bring your own (we're not rich). If you'd like to perform something in the space, make a larger-scale project, or do an ongoing project, give us a holler. We'll put you on the calendar.
Frankenart mart labs creates art experiments, projects, and products for every show. Many of them have participatory components for folks to engage with on the spot. Stop by and see what we're cooking, or check out the PROJECTS page to get a sneak peek.
Frankenart hosts month-long playshops for peeps who want to collaborate more hands-on-edly or more guidedly with us. Playshop participants work together to create a project for the current theme. The next playshop starts July 6 for the Infiltrate theme. Check out the PROJECTS page for more information.
