A Night of Utopian Gestures featuring Public Movement at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) presented a lively and interactive evening in conjunction with YBCA’s exhibition Without Reality There Is No Utopia. The evening brought together artists, musicians and audiences as they explored human agency and questioned the expected dynamics of public space. The evening featured a special presentation by Dana Yahalomi, the leader of Public Movement, a performative research body that investigates and stages political actions in public spaces (co-presented with Artis); Michael Swaine, one of the founding members of Futurefarmers, who led a participatory performance; as well as FEMA, MORDS, and Swap/Meet SF accompanied with music by DJ Patrick Lotilla, Snow Angel, and Micropixie.
