New Genres: Post-studio Performances
Friday, Jan 27, 2017, 1:00PM - 4:00PM
Walter and McBean Galleries
800 Chestnut Street

Tony Labat's Post-Studio course will present performative responses in the context of A Living Thing / Mel Ziegler: Flag Exchange.

This event is part of series of open call events in conjunction with A Living Thing an interactive exhibition platform featuring programming developed in collaboration with members of the SFAI community: students, staff, faculty, and the general public. 

A Living Thing seeks to create space for common ground within our increasingly fractured civil discourse. Throughout its run, A Living Thing will offer a sanctuary for conversations, performances, debate, and acts of solidarity and resistance—through an open mic during all gallery hours, and this open call to students, artists, activists, citizens, residents, visitors, and others that wish to contribute to the life represented by the flag.

 SFAI invites participation in A Living Thing. Please visit to submit your ideas.
