Art At The Dump: Recology’s Recycled Materials Art Exhibition | SF

Art At The Dump: Recologys Recycled Materials Art Exhibition | SF

The Artist in Residence Program at Recology San Francisco is a unique art program that provides Bay Area artists who work with recycled materials with scavenging privileges in the dump, access to discarded materials, a stipend, and 24-hour access to the company’s well-equipped art studio.

At the conclusion of their residency, Recology hosts a public exhibition and reception for the artists featuring the artwork made during their residency.

2016 Recology Exhibit

Enjoy the next exhibition and reception for current artists-in-residence Jeremiah Barber, Alison Pebworth and student artist Robb Godshaw on Friday, January 22, from 5-10 pm and Saturday, January 23, from 1-3 pm.

Additional viewing hours will be held on Tuesday, January 26, from 5-7 pm, with a gallery walk-through with the artists at 6 pm.

This exhibition will be the culmination of four months of work by the artists who have scavenged materials from the dump to make art and promote recycling and reuse.

    Make Me Change Me
    Jeremiah Barber turns found fragments of personal writing into poetry for performers to read in a series of videos. Protagonists are positioned in fantastic environments at moments of transformation and illustrate universal moments of struggle and transcendence.
  • Alison Pebworth
    Innards and Upwards, A San Francisco Wunderkammer
    Using the Wunderkammer, or Wonder Cabinet, of the Renaissance as a point of departure, Alison Pebworth presents cultural artifacts, and bits of San Francisco history and architecture, in a large-scale installation. Her work brings the same fascination once held for the mysteries of nature and science to our discards, creating a spectacle of consumption from an ever-changing city.
  • Robb Godshaw
    Big-Screen Debris
    Robb Godshaw creates a series of TV microscopes from 1980s rear projection televisions, which each magnify a small found object. Tiny mementos and keepsakes, lost in the enormity of the dump pile, will appear larger than life, possibly reflecting their significance to those who once possessed them.
