Future Tense: Apature 2015

SEIZE THE FUTURE AT APATURE 2015! APAture is Kearny Street Workshop’s annual multidisciplinary festival that presents and promotes art by up-and-coming artists of Asian Pacific American descent. For thirteen seasons, the festival has sparked dialogue around contemporary social issues, especially those that affect APA communities, and inspired collaboration between artists and community members toward social action. Our theme for this year is FUTURE TENSE. We’ve selected over 65 artists to imagine what’s possible for the future, with a particular interest in how social change might be exhibited in their work. __________________________________________________ 10/2 Opening Reception & Visual Arts Showcase (Free) 6–10pm @ Arc Gallery, 1246 Folsom St., SF Co-presented by Arc Gallery and Asian American Women Artists Association FEATURING: Kimberly Acebo Arteche, Austin Boe, Rea Lynn DeGuzman, Grace Kim, Kyong Ae Kim, Alan Khum, Hadar Kleiman, Jana and Lawrence, Topher Maka, Nicholas Oh, Sunshine Velasco, Jeremy Villaluz, Manon Bogerd Wada, Xiao Wang PERFORMANCES BY: Caroline Calderon, Joseph Nontanovan CURATED BY: Rea Lynn DeGuzman, Dara Katrina del Rosario, Vincent Yin __________________________________________________ 10/3 Performing Arts Showcase ($10–15 sliding scale) 8–11pm @ A.C.T.’s The Strand, The Rueff, 1127 Market St., SF Co-presented by ACT-SF and Ferocious Lotus Theater FEATURING: SPULU, Bad Repertory Theater, Sammay Dizon, Rasika Kumar, Fong "Batman" Tran, Irene Tu CURATED BY: Alex Abalos, Michelle Fajardo, Jasmin Hoo, Rian Tong __________________________________________________ 10/4 Literary Arts Showcase ($5–10 sliding scale) 7–10pm @ Arc Gallery, 1246 Folsom St., SF Co-presented by Maganda Magazine and Quiet Lightning FEATURING: Siamak Vassoughi, Kazumi Chin, Yume Kim, Ari Laurel, Quinn Leong, Michelle Lin, Francois Luong, Ploi Pirapokin, Kanwalroop Kaur Singh, Shelley Wong CURATED BY: Jason Bayani, Francois Luong, Robert Marquez __________________________________________________ 10/09 Music Showcase ($10–15 sliding scale) 8pm–midnight @ Bindlestiff Studio, 185 6th St., SF Co-presented by Bindlestiff Studio and B.U.M.P.
