PAST EXHIBITION

Gardens of Felt Zine Delights

August 25 - September 13


Gray Area is pleased to present Gardens of FELT Zine Delights, a special exhibition of works by experimental internet artist collective FELT Zine. Originally conceived as a series of 3D-rendered sculptures, Gardens has evolved into a fully developed interactive world that brings the themes of Hieronymus Bosch's famed triptych, The Garden of Earthly Delights (1490-1510) into contemporary canon with current visual language that speaks to modern experiences with screens: meme aesthetics, video game graphics, and algorithmic feed-space.

Gray Area Opens New Gallery Space August 25 with Inaugural Exhibition

We're thrilled to announce the opening of the new Gray Area Gallery on August 25, a permanent exhibition space located within Gray Area's current home in the MIssion District's Grand Theater.

Gray Area was originally launched in 2006 by Founding Executive Director Josette Melchor as Gray Area Gallery in San Francisco's South of Market (SoMa) to showcase technology-driven art. The Gallery transformed into the Gray Area non-profit in 2008, and exhibited works by seminal new media artists including Casey Reas, Aaron Koblin, Camille Utterback, and STAMEN Design. During this time, the space quickly became a cultural community center, developing notable civic engagement programs activating communities to respond to local urban issues, and expanding with educational programs, research, and live performances.

The new Gray Area Gallery continues the tradition of making genre-bending work accessible to the public. In tandem with broader Gray Area thematic initiatives, the first year of gallery curation will center on the complicated tensions and surface areas between identity, representation, expression, oppression, and technology.
