MAP at the North Beach Art Walk Friday Nov. 2nd!

If you are in the North Beach neighborhood on Friday night please check out our MAP installation! We were invited by the MicroClimate Collective to participate in their exhibition ADD which is taking place at the Emerald Tablet.

For this event we will be presenting the Building Bridges of Peace Station, an interactive Pop-Up post office/mail art installation which is a collaboration between MAP and Bay Area-based non-profit Building Bridges and features postcards created by Kerri Lee Johnson and John Casey.  MAP will also be installing the Mobile Vespa Screenprint Cart which will feature original screenprints created by Lisa Solomon and Marcos Lafarga.
Please stop by, make a free take-away poster and participate in a mail art project!

CollectiveGIF: Information Overload

AnimatedGIFs embody the short attention span: gestural images pulling you into meditative focus and distracting you at the same time.  Native to the Internet, the GIF is a vernacular form, easily dismissed.  Glitchy, contrary, paradoxical in their position, animated GIFs take things out of normal time and place.  CollectiveGIF: Information Overflow will present thousands of gifs – momentary gesticulations collected from the wilds of the Internet

Featuring CollectiveGIFs from killer banshee: Eliot K Daughtry & Kriss De Jong with Jerry Smith, Fly, Zon Wakest, Travis Meinolf, Dean Putney, Alma Alloro, Phil Bonner, ABVH, AJElledge, MrGIF, Dain Fagerholm, Beck&Burg, Eric L. Sanchez, Anthony Discenza, Ignacio Torres, Jake OLimb, Luli & the many minions of the memescape that is AnimatedGIF.

Gallery Hours: Friday evenings, 6-9pm; Saturday and Sunday afternoons, 2-6pm
