On 704 and 708 Kearny Street, you might see installation in progress in the vacant storefronts on this busy San Francisco street.
The Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco extends its Daily Lives show with the YBCA, by bringing Bay Area artists out of the gallery and studio and to the public with their Art-In-Storefront exhibition.
Featuring work by Stella Zhang and Feng Jin, this exhibit is set to open next week. Here are some pictures of the storefronts before and in progress during installation.
Many a perplexed passerby gazed inside while I was there, getting a first hand look at the installations. This show revitalizes the discarded spaces within our city, while helping to create a new face for Chinatown, reconstructed with contemporary art.
