Occupations: Art Takes Up Space invites a group of established mid-career artists, based mostly in the Bay Area, to consider the ways in which we philosophically relate to physical, psychological, and social spaces. Through projections of video and photography in the public space of Old Oakland storefronts, the exhibition brings the intellectual curiosity and visual engagement of contemporary gallery art to the wider and more diverse public of the streets.
