Off Shore

Abandoning the limitations of solid ground, five artists create new projects considering the boats, creeks, nautical communities and very edges of San Francisco. Through off-site excursions and gallery-based installations, these projects bring historical waterways to light, celebrate a space for outsider communities and imagine the possibilities of water as an expanded territory.

With a calendar full of walks, celebrations, lectures and performances of all varieties, Off Shore makes full use of the Bay Area’s numerous – and often unnoticed – waterways. Participants are invited to partake in the artists’ research, join in excursions and enjoy the liberating thrill of large-scale events.
