Coming Clean: SF

Please join Lava Mae + Fouladi Projects for “Coming Clean: SF” –
a multi-media exhibition amplifying the intimate experience of
homelessness through the artists’ lens.

The show, which runs from January 13 to February 25, features a range of
Bay Area artists working in a variety of mediums including
photography, drawing, collage, fibre art, film, sculpture and sound experience.

The work of featured artists Amy Wilson Faville, Elizabeth Lo, Danielle Nelson Mourning,
Joel Daniel PhillipsRamekon O’Arwisters, Yon Sim, Kathryn Spence, and SOUND MADE PUBLIC’s
Philip Wood and Tania Ketenjian invites us to look a little closer, listen, imagine not having a place to
call home – evoking a deeper view and a greater connection to our shared humanity.

Experience SOUND MADE PUBLIC’s piece, What We Seeto hear the artists’ reflections.


In addition to the Tuesday through Saturday, 12pm to 6pm, viewing schedule, Coming Clean: SF
will feature weekly evening programming at Fouladi Projects.
We hope you’ll join us for what we
think is a ‘not to be missed’ line-up of evenings (6pm to 8pm) curated to spark insight, provoke
conversation, and stimulate associative thinking.
Doors open at 6pm and all programs begin at 6:30pm.
