Southern Exposure is a transformative nonprofit arts organization dedicated to empowering local artists and located in the historic Mission District. Our rental program provides a 1150 sq. ft. gallery space that is built to be flexible, creating a perfect site for private celebrations, product launches, and corporate off-site gatherings both large and small! Street-facing windows, a grand sliding glass panel, and skylights bring in energizing amounts of natural light for daytime occasions. In the evening, guests are invited to be creative in transforming the space into a glamorous environment with lighting and decor. Our Events Manager is on-site to help plan a walkthrough and ultimately oversee the success of your event.

A note on Programming

At Southern Exposure our primary function is as a visual art space, which conceives and produces exhibitions by our Curatorial Council made up of local Bay Area artists. Sharing this space through hosting events helps us support their initiatives. To avoid crossing interests we cannot host art exhibitions and other art related events outside of the programs curated by Southern Exposure. Thank you for understanding.



Thank you for considering Southern Exposure for your event!
