Wednesday Feb 6, 2013 1:00pm-5:00pm in San Francisco
Kimball Education Gallery

Contemporary culture is awash in the rhetoric of dreams and revolutionary longing. From attempts to revitalize America (the “American Dream”), to civil rights (the DreamAct), to recent global grassroots movements reimagining a future of social, economic, and environmental justice for all, collective aspirations are being creatively expressed and shared with unprecedented speed and reach. The gallery will be used as a laboratory for exploring the intersection of individual and shared states of unconscious/ness. Invited guests will include experts from diverse backgrounds to facilitate dream experiments using both poetic and scientific methodologies.

The artists invite you to participate in or observe a dream session. To reserve your space, email Drop-ins welcome as long as space is available. Dream sessions will take place on Fabric Earth: A Textile Topography, handcrafted by Amber Bieg.
Gallery Hours: Wed-Sun. 1–5 P.M.
