Public Events at The Lab and Embark Gallery this May
Adrian Van Allen, Crafting Nature.


See you in the city!

While our campus is temporarily closed for construction of The Commons—a new outdoor space for art and events with incredible views of the surrounding natural landscape—we’re thrilled to co-present a series of off-site programs in San Francisco in collaboration with several Bay Area cultural organizations and partners. Join us in May at The Lab and Embark Gallery...and save the date for our Benefit Art Auction at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture on June 7. More information and tickets at

Point of "Fact"

In partnership with The Lab

$12 | Free for Members of Headlands and The Lab | Buy Tickets
Headlands Members, RSVP via email:
Headlands and The Lab host an evening of presentations that ask: how do we know what we know? The relationship between information and interpretation feels shaky when we are reminded daily that we are living in a moment of post-truths, contested realities, and alternative facts. During this evening, we will meet artists and researchers who explicitly address the production of knowledge as contingent, charged, and often charming. Presenters include cognitive scientist and professor Lera Boroditsky; artist and anthropologist Adrian Van Allen (AFF '11); and performance artist Xandra Ibarra (AFF '14). Learn more
Thursday, May 4 | 7PM

This event is offsite at The Lab: 2948 16th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

No End in Sight: 2016–17 Graduate Fellowship Exhibition

In partnership with Embark Gallery

Free | Opening Reception, Sunday, May 21, 1–4PM
No End in Sight presents the work and practices of Headlands 2016–17 Graduate Fellows. In the spirit of the organization's history of encouraging artistic exploration and experimentation, this exhibition travels the path of an idea to fruition, taking various routes and perspectives. What happens when we begin to understand an art practice as an evolution rather than a result-oriented endeavor? Whether it be with meticulous research, collection of scientific data, sketches as preparation for acts of chance, the organic development of the handmade, thinking through digital culture via analog devices, or the act of autobiographical documentation, No End in Sight asks fruitful questions rather than presenting final answers. Learn more
Opening Reception: Sunday, May 21, 1–4PM
Exhibition on view through Wednesday, June 7
Gallery hours: Saturday–Sunday, 12–5PM

This event is offsite at Embark Gallery, 2 Marina Blvd., #330, San Francisco, CA 94123
