Curator Lance Fung likes big, sprawling projects. He organized the "Snow Show" for Italy's 2006 Winter Olympics, pairing architects and artists for works made out of frozen materials. His 2008 SITE Santa Fe Biennial brought together 22 artists from all over the world. Now, Fung offers his take on everyone's favorite new arts district: the Tenderloin (see main column). In "Wonderland," 53 artists will create site-specific works throughout the neighborhood, teaming with local galleries like Ever Gold and the Luggage Store Annex. While most participants might be classified as "emerging," there are some familiar local names involved. Roman Cesario of gallery 1AMSF will paint a 30-by-45-foot mural depicting life in the Tenderloin, and Erik Otto is collaborating on "Down the Rabbit Hole," an installation that addresses human trafficking. Other works to watch for include ScreenLab's audio "listening environments," which will be broadcast via local radio at 93.7 FM or cell phone (415-375-8282), and Tenderloin batik artist Amie Krubally's studio show at 125 Hyde.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
