avaf’s reimagined roller rink, a 21st-century social sculpture drawing on the optimism and democratic energy of disco-driven skate sites, makes its California premiere at Fort Mason. The painting-like environment blends psychedelia, color fields, and the gender-queer imagery of San Francisco’s legendary performance troupe The Cockettes to create an iconic pop-up art installation.

Local roller-skating organizations the Church of 8 Wheels and Bay Area Derby are partnering with Fort Mason to produce and operate the rink.  Both organizations provide rink hosts, DJs, and special programs throughout the run of the project. The Church provides rental skates, available to visitors for $5.
