Welcome to the Pièce de RESISTance!

On Saturday, April 22, SOMArts Cultural Center teams up with curator Kelly Lovemonster to transform our Main Gallery into a one-night-only art party and contemporary ball to benefit the cultural oasis under the 101 freeway known as SOMArts. For over 35 years, SOMArts has fostered access to the arts in the Bay Area, uplifting the voices of artists who are too often marginalized in the mainstream art world.

The Pièce de RESISTance will showcase SOMArts as a cultural oasis in an event conceived entirely by artists to benefit SOMArts' programs. Guests will enjoy an evening of experimental performance, artist-designed installations, and dancing to a lineup of the Bay Area's finest DJs.
Tickets are on sale now. Show your commitment to the resistance!
Preview Happy Hour, 6:00–8:00 pm
All-Access ticket holders will enjoy complimentary food and beverage and a chance to meet the artist masterminds behind the 2017–2018 season of SOMArts Curatorial Residency exhibitions. Plus, remarks from the San Francisco Art Commission's Director of Cultural Affairs Tom DeCaigny AND an exclusive screening from Berlin-based video artist Hito Steyerl.

Party & Performances, 8:00 pm–12:00 am
The Pièce de RESISTance features San Francisco's best and brightest DJs and performers, with a commitment to the experimental, the underground, and the politically engaged.
