Introducing B.A.D. Space Gallery

Artist Pia Myrvold with Breanna de Geere

B.A.D. Space Gallery by Breanna de Geere is open in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood with its inaugural exhibition from Norwegian-born artist Pia Myrvold. MYrvoLD’s multidisciplinary works reflect her depiction of contemporary reality and urban life as well as how humans deal with emotions and technological advances. Featured in museums and galleries throughout the world including Centre Pompidou in Paris, Venice BiennaleArt for Tomorrow and Center for Architecture in New York, and Pace Gallery Beijing, her pieces typically incorporate emerging technologies and unexplored media. MYrvoLD creates hybrids from architecture, design, fine art, technology, fashion, digital art, contemporary dance and music. At B.A.D. Space Gallery her exhibition HYBRID LOVE merges three collections curated by de Geere:

  1. ARCHIVE — comprised of twenty fashion designs from MYrvoLD’s Cybercouture, Fast Forward, Interface, Osmosis and Slow Tech collections, presented at the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture between 1994 and 2003, as well as a few new statement pieces
  2. COLOSS ISLAND SHIELDS — video and print wall sculptures
  3. MODULARS — limited-edition furniture and textiles including signature art carpets. The project began as a collaboration between MYrvoLD and Snøhetta, the architects behind the new SFMOMA building

Once home to large warehouses, canning factories, industrial buildings, shipyards, and wild fennel fields, the Dogpatch neighborhood is now a vibrant hub for local artists, designers and entrepreneurs. B.A.D. Space Gallery at 2360 Third Street, is open Wednesday through Saturday from 12:00 – 6:00pm, or by private appointment. HYBRID LOVE will be in B.A.D. Space through August 15, 2016.

The mission of B.A.D. Space Gallery is to fuse fashion, art and design with technology and innovation. Working from both a local and global perspective, de Geere is looking to integrate local production with international talent. “Showcasing the most creative and interesting people I know and bringing new talent to San Francisco, while maintaining and developing relationships with local manufacturing is a long held dream of mine that is coming into focus with B.A.D Space,” said de Geere.
