(De) Appropriation Wall
In May 2018 the San Francisco Arts Commission invited us to host a public print shop at the (de)Appropriation wall on Valencia Street. After 7 hours, 250 posters, 3 volunteers, a fork lift, and many participants, we covered the entire 20 x 30 ft. wall with posters.
After The Wall was completed we left a sharpie pen hanging in the middle of the wall.
When we came back two days later we saw that the public started commenting on various posters attached to the wall.

THE SANCTUARY CITY PRINT CART
Part of the “Sanctuary” exhibition.
We invited 36 artists from 21 different countries to design contemporary rugs reflecting on the notion of sanctuary, offering visitors a multiplicity of perspectives on the basic human need for refuge, protection, and sacred ground. The Sanctuary Print Cart collaborated with the exhibition to silkscreen four original artists’ prints based on their response to the sanctuary exhibition. These screens where printed at the sight of the exhibition and given away to the public for free.
