The YBCA:ConVerge series is a free monthly public gathering featuring creative and generative social art practices. ConVerge is where community and innovative multi- and inter-disciplinary arts practices come together in our free and public spaces in a fluid, interactive, experimental format designed to engage audiences. YBCA’s Grand Lobby and Front Door Gallery will come alive during ConVerge events with social art, live music and inspiring curated performances, as well as drinks prepared by YBCA mixologists.
Chris Treggiari and Peter Foucault’s Mobile Screen Print Cart
Sep 19, 2013 4:00pm – 8:00pm
September’s YBCA: ConVerge program presents Chris Treggiari and Peter Foucault’s Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) project and its Mobile Screen Print Cart, an interactive, neighborhood-generated social sculpture inspired by the design of a classic teardrop trailer that is towed behind a vintage Vespa scooter. The Mobile Screen Print Cart will explore the varied history of community posters in the Bay Area, while simultaneously giving the viewer a platform to create their own original, individual posters that will dispersed throughout the Bay Area. For this project MAP has collaborated with celebrated printmaker and educator Art Hazelwood and invited local art blog SF Art Enthusiast to conduct on-site video interviews. For this event we are also collaborating with Brooklyn based artist Jonathan Grover who has created an interactive “Tweet” program allowing participants to get involved from anywhere around the world! Interactive performance pieces will take place throughout the evening inviting the public to become active participants in this multi-media event.
