DESCRIPTION
For twenty-five years, The Lab has presented some of the most innovative and experimental interdisciplinary art in the Bay Area. The organization has fostered local, national, and international artists, and served as a springboard for many to reach further career heights. In celebration of this milestone, The Lab issued an open call for entries, inviting emerging artists to respond to the work of past exhibiting artists, including Scott Arford (2002), Lauren Davies (2001, 2006, 2009), Paul DiMarinis (1988), Taraneh Hemami (1995, 2008), Lynn Hershman Leeson (1986, 1987, 1995), Barry McGee (1996), Orlan (1993), Tony Oursler (2001), Trevor Paglen (2005), Rigo (1994, 1996), and Rex Ray (1994).

Pastforward, The 25th Anniversary Exhibition, recognizes the influence of these selected, seminal artists from its extensive archive. Comprised of accomplished individuals whose work spans a range of artistic forms and concepts, these artists represent the arenas that The Lab continues to serve; their diverse career paths reflect the possibilities that The Lab hopes to illuminate for artists yet to come.
