As we enter into the Inaugural Season at our new home on 80 Turk Street, we feel as if coming home from a long journey. The building has not been an easy project – from rallying multi-million dollar support to aligning ourselves to a new neighborhood, while maintaining a stronger than ever focus on grassroots, community-facing programming – our scrappy team is ready to once again to focus on the art-making.
In times when Bay Area narratives surrounding art and real estate are troubling, we see this moment as an intensely positive move for local art. Organizations and individuals, large and small, have rallied around this project, and it’s now time for us to turn square footage into living, breathing performance. Get ready, because our next year of programming will show the Bay Area that our artists are dazzlingly passionate, talented, and full of life!
The 80 Turk Project will exposé an upstairs studio dance space, a state-of-the-art main theater, a two-story lobby for launching exhibitions and talks, an artist apartment for hosting visiting art makers, and an basement exhibition space for smaller events, rehearsals, and so much more.
Check our line-up in our 80 Turk Inaugural Season and join us in celebrating this new moment,
Signing off, your friendly neighborhood Programs Associate,
