From executive producers Wim Wenders and Errol Morris, this documentary follows the harrowing journey of three U.S. military veteran whistleblowers determined to break the silence surrounding America’s secret drone war.

“Searing film gives voice to the people of Ferguson”
—The Guardian

Official selection of the San  Francisco International Film Festival

When police in Ferguson, Missouri, kill unarmed teenager Michael Brown and leave him lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis County. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring together residents and supporters from around the country to hold vigil and protest, even as the national guard descends. Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising and a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.

Day of Art + Activism with Lava Mae

Lava Mae “Goes Big” for World Toilet Day 2016 with Giant Toilet Art Installation

Nonprofit Known for Innovating Mobile Hygiene for the Homeless Stages Day of Art + Activism to Raise Awareness About Staggering Lack of Access to Sanitation Across U.S. and in San Francisco

On Saturday, November 19, as cities across the globe mark World Toilet Day 2016, San Francisco-based nonprofit Lava Mae is “going big” by staging a 14’ x 14” x 10′ Giant Tent Toilet art installation piece to call attention to the eye-opening lack of access to toilets for individuals around the world, across the U.S., and throughout San Francisco:

– 2.5 billion people around the globe lack access to safe, reliable sanitation.

– 1.5 million Americans lack access to full indoor plumbing.

– In San Francisco alone, more than 7,500 individuals experiencing homelessness lack access to restrooms and basic sanitation.

To raise awareness, spark discussion, and spur action, Lava Mae is hosting World Toilet Day 2016 from 10am to 3pm at PROXY SF, featuring an interactive day of art + activism designed to surprise, educate, and inspire adults and kids of all ages. Activities include:

 – An eye-opening, interactive art installation featuring a 14’ x 14” x 10′ Giant Tent Toilet, plus accompanying toilet paper holder.

– Student writing activities led by 826 Valencia (think: Poop Haikus!).

– Tours of Lava Mae’s well-known and highly visible mobile hygiene Blue Bus.

– “Learn More & Take Action” stations to advocate for increased access to basic sanitation and hygiene for all.

 The Giant Tent Toilet was created by world-renowned artist Robin Lasserwho is widely-known for her interactive artworks and Tent Dress series, in collaboration with fashion designer Rachel Richardson and plumber/craftsman Sean Collins. 

 As viewers step inside the Tent Toilet interior, they will see blue swirls of water, and hear accompanying audio of flushing sounds. The soundtrack will also include short reflections and stories from Lava Mae’s homeless guests, discussing the daily challenges of accessing sanitation and maintaining a sense of dignity.  

“Lava Mae believes that hygiene is a basic human right and that everyone, everywhere should have access to clean, safe, and reliable sanitation,” said Lava Mae Founder & CEO Doniece Sandoval. “We encourage anyone who shares this belief to help advocate and work for dramatically increasing the availability of restrooms and resources for essential hygiene in their communities on World Toilet Day and every day.”

 About Lava Mae

Lava Mae is taking “radical hospitality” to the street by bringing humanity, innovation, and collaboration to the way services are provided to those experiencing homelessness.  Founded in San Francisco in 2013, Lava Mae began by converting public transportation buses into showers and toilets on wheels to deliver hygiene and rekindle dignity. To-date, Lava Mae has touched the lives of 2,400 individuals who have taken 14,000+ showers on our mobile units, inspired replication of our hygiene services, and dramatically raised awareness about the lack of access to showers and basic hygiene across the U.S. and around the globe.

Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Viggo Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults. But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he’s taught them.

Viggo Mortensen shines in a fearless and emotionally raw performance, and writer/director Matt Ross (who plays Gavin Belson in “Silicon Valley” and who lives in Berkeley) delivers a heartfelt lesson about humanity in this fiercely-original and visually-stunning film.

Tips for enjoying movies outside at PROXY.

After stumbling upon a mysterious tickling competition video online, journalist David Farrier reaches out to request an interview for a light, puff piece for New Zealand TV. But the response he receives is not what he expected — he is answered with virulent insults about his sexual orientation and threats of extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. Shocked but intrigued, David ignores these threats and starts investigating — a journey that takes him around the world, and leads him to uncover a bizarre and vast empire of harassment and abuse. The further he goes, the stranger, darker, and outlandishly-entertaining this detective story becomes. “Tickled” is a wild and fascinating ride through a secret wormhole into a hidden world of wealth, power, and anonymity.

Fall Film Festival: Morris From America

Friday, October 7

Morris From America
Directed by Chad Hartigan, 2016 [R]
Sundance 2016 Awards for Screenwriting and Acting

Morris is 13, chubby, and loves the Notorious B.I.G. His single dad (Craig Robinson) just uprooted him from Brooklyn to move to Heidelberg, Germany. As an African-American teenager who likes to spit rhymes and freestyle, he’s a fish-out-of-water, adrift in a very white, very foreign new home. When he meets a beautiful and rebellious girl named Katrin, he instantly falls in love and she challenges him to come out of his shell. As Morris rides a roller-coaster of emotions, the film captures a heartwarming and disarmingly honest look at adolescence, acceptance, and father-son relationships — and the film achieves the rare feat of being both poignant and hilariously entertaining.

Featuring a breakout appearance by Markees Christmas, and an incredibly touching and nuanced performance by Craig Robinson, who has been receiving tremendous praise for his first dramatic role.

As a part of their celebration of 20 years in SF, Cypress String Quartet is bringing Beethoven to The City.  “Beethoven in The City” will consist of a series of 16 performances by the Cypress String Quartet in May 2016, with each concert featuring one of Beethoven’s string quartets. Concerts will be free and will be presented in 16 different and varied publicly accessible spaces, including events in each of the 11 supervisory districts. Locations will include iconic settings such as Golden Gate Park and Yerba Buena Gardens, as well as community anchor institutions such as the San Francisco General Hospital, the St. Anthony’s Foundation, and a variety of other sites.

“Beethoven in The City” was conceived by the CSQ as a way not only to give back to the city that has fostered and inspired their music making, but also as a celebration of San Francisco. Through “Beethoven in The City,” the CSQ aims to bring Beethoven’s music to the broadest range of individuals possible. As a composer who overcame severe personal challenges to propagate his belief in the equality of humankind, Beethoven is a great ambassador for both classical music and human rights, and CSQ believes his music can speak to anyone. Come join us this May for an incredible City-wide musical celebration!

The Wolfpack

Directed by Crystal Moselle, 2015 [R]

In-person appearance + Q&A with the director

 

Winner of the U.S. Grand Jury Prize (Documentary), 2015 Sundance Film Festival

 

Despite growing up on the Lower East Side, the six Angulo brothers know little of New York City or the outside world, having spent most of their lives locked away in their apartment. Nicknamed “The Wolfpack,” most of what they know of the world has been gleaned from the films they watch obsessively and recreate meticulously, using elaborate homemade props and costumes. After one of the brothers escapes the apartment, the others soon want to follow, leading to a chance encounter with first-time film director Crystal Moselle, whose extraordinary portrait captures the thrills of The Wolfpack’s discoveries and illustrates the transformative power of movies.

Fire Brunch 5 at Biergarten

April 18, 1906 was a catastrophic day for San Francisco. In the early morning hours, a great earthquake roiled the ground beneath the city. A couple living on Hayes Street at Gough tried to make the most of the situation by eating breakfast like civilized people. Unfortunately, their meal of ham and eggs caught fire and went on to burn for four days.

For the fifth year in a row, The Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association is hosting a community brunch to gather in remembrance of the Great Fire. Aside from coming together for some delicious brunch at Biergarten, it’s an excuse to meet your neighbors in advance of another neighborhood-wide emergency. All proceeds will benefit the activities of the HVNA.

If you’re an early visitor to Ritual Coffee or Juice Shop, you can swing by for an historic walking tour of the neighborhood at 10am.

SFMTA Octavia Boulevard Design Open House

Octavia Boulevard is celebrating a decade of life in 2015. If you’re up on your Hayes Valley and PROXY history, then you know that Octavia Boulevard was created after the Central Freeway was torn down after a committed effort on the part of the then-nascent HVNA. With the freeway removed, the potential for green spaces like Patricia’s Green and urban experiments like PROXY was created.

Not all of the parcels along Octavia Boulevard have been developed, however, and the City of SF is “reviewing conditions and proposing solutions to keep people moving safely and to encourage a vibrant, sustainable streetscape.”

Stop by PROXY on Thursday, April 16th from 3pm-7pm to learn about and provide input on the ideas that have been laid out so far. Check out Hoodline for a nice summary of the plans that you can review if you can’t make the design open house.

 

For more information, contact: Casey Hildreth, Project Manager, SFMTA // 415.701.4817 // casey.hildreth@sfmta.org

Hayes Valley Artists Holiday Pop-Up Gallery

PROXY is pleased to welcome to a collection of Hayes Valley artists to the auxiliary container at Octavia and Linden for a holiday pop-up gallery. Like the eclectic storefronts that line Hayes Street and the mix of people and puppies you’ll find lounging in Patricia’s Green on a sunny afternoon, the range of art that will be on display can’t be neatly described in a few sentences so you’ll have to drop by to see the works yourself.

The gallery will be open daily from 9am to 7pm  starting on November 26th and its final day of the season will be December 24th. The hours may extend beyond 7pm if foot traffic is good, but the show’s curator Madeline Behrens-Brigham wanted a consistent schedule in order to avoid people seeking out the gallery only to realize they had mixed up the operating hours. She says,  “I’m a firm believer that if you wear high heels to the dance, you don’t take them off halfway.”

A casual artists + community opening will take place on Saturday, November 27th from 5-7pm. There are also plans for Sunday tea-time talks, face painting and whatever else they cook up. Check back or follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for daily updates as the gallery’s programming gets finalized.

*Behrens-Brigham was able to convince visitors to the gallery by to be last-minute artist participants in the 580 Hayes gallery earlier in the fall, so the list of artists showing work at the PROXY pop-up will invariably increase.

If you don’t need convincing and want to be a part of the show, or you have other questions, email hayesvalleyartists@gmail.com

The pop-up gallery is made possible with sponsorship by PROXY, envelope A+D, Hayes Valley Art Coalition, and the Art, Culture, and Entertainment (ACE) Committee of the Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association.

POSTPONED: Aether takes SF on an Urban Adventure

UPDATE: This event has been postponed. Check back for updates on when it will be rescheduled. 11.06.2014

Cruising its coastal highways on a motorcycle is one of California’s quintessential experiences. Unfortunately, so is weaving through stop-and-go traffic in order to cross any bridge to anywhere, and that takes skill and confidence as a rider. So when Aether Apparel thought of who they could turn to to lead an urban maneuvering skills training, the answer was right behind them with blue lights flashing: a motorcycle cop.

Details from Aether about the Sunday, November 9th event are below, and you can buy your ticket on their website.

 Join us Sunday November 9th (11/9/14) for a day of urban motorcycle riding and technical skills training. Prepare for Urban Adventure.

Following our successful events in Los Angeles and New York, this Bay Area edition will begin with a scenic morning ride led by SF-based motorcycle collective Piston and Chain. The route will take riders on a tour of some of the most scenic riding roads in the area and will conclude at a training location on Treasure Island.

The afternoon will kick off with an on-site catered lunch, followed by skills training by active police motor officer Kerry Schilf. Participants will have the chance to learn how to “ride like a cop” by practicing on the same cone’s course motor officer use to train, while receiving critical feedback and coaching.

The day’s events will culminate with a motorcycle obstacle course designed by staff from RawHyde Adventures, the guru’s of off-road adventure riding. Here, bikes of all makes and models will use their low-speed handling skills to navigate through an urban debris field for the chance to win prizes and give-aways from Piston and Chain, RawHyde Adventures, and Aether.

ITINERARY:

8:00 AM – Event start. Breakfast will be provided at AETHERsf at 489 Hayes Street. Riders will receive a briefing on the days events as well as turn sheets for the morning ride.

8:30 AM – Riders begin to depart in waves for the morning ride.

12:00 PM – Riders arrive at the Treasure Island training location. Lunch is served.

1:00 PM – Riders will receive technical training and riding tips from motor officer Kerry Schilf, while practicing on a “motor officer training” cones course.

3:30PM – Riders will have the chance to compete in our urban debris field obstacle course. Navigate this course with the least foot “dabs” and you could win give-aways from Aether, RawHyde, and Piston and Chain.

4:30 PM – Awards announced and distributed.

Limited space available.

Date: Sunday November 9th (11/9/14), rain or shine.

Location: 489 Hayes Street, San Francisco, CA 94102

If you’re planning on riding this event 2-Up, you will need to purchase 2 tickets. (Ticket price is going primarily to off-set the cost of provided breakfast and lunch)

PROXY_ART: Transient Havens

Valentin Ruhry is a “sculptor in the traditional sense, working with untraditional materials”. Those materials have often been industrial in nature; in Untitled (wave), he uses naked fluorescent tubes to create a gentle wave of light that feels like it is about to push forward and fill the room.

Exhibition view of Untitled (wave) in Newport Beach, 2010, Christine Konig Galerie

Ruhry spent the summer teaching at the San Francisco Art Institute. His class, titled the Invisible Institute, prompted “students to question how their practice may function outside of the traditional studio or white cube, by encouraging the use of alternative materials and art processes.” Ruhry happened to be living in Hayes Valley and often passed by and through PROXY. A chance introduction to a PROXY staffer led to Transient Havens, the upcoming exhibition of Ruhry’s students’ works at PROXY on Friday, August 1st from 5pm-8pm.

A full description of the exhibition is below.

A one day exhibition with works by Anonymous Artist, Noah Brill, Carl Martin, Valentin Ruhry, Christian Valla and Nancy Winkelmann.

Curated by Pierre-François Galpin and Marie Martraire.

Taking place within a fenced provisional placeholder for a future permanent building, the one-day art exhibition Transient Havens prompts viewers to consider the potentials for urban and social impermanence in the heart of Hayes Valley. For this exhibition, the featured artworks by Noah Brill, Carl Martin, Valentin Ruhry, Christian Valla, Nancy Winkelmann, and an anonymous artist take shelter in this transient haven privately managed by the design firm envelope A+D, yet overtly visible from the street. Together, the featured temporary art installations redefine perhaps fixed distinctions between private and public space in this hip neighborhood of small and portable “pop-up” style retail pods such as Proxy, among other fancy restaurants, and fashion trendy shops. Each taken individually, the artworks make visible common, yet distinct, concealed aspects of private life, and challenge different notions of invisibility, accessibility, and common understandings of territoriality.

From the cavern of a closed metal container, Noah Brill’s sound installation shouts inner thoughts about the daily surroundings aloud. Similar to the “thought bubbles” in comics, allowing readers to enter characters’ inner and secret opinions, Brill’s piece invites viewers to put in perspective the shifting private/public status of the area.

Christian Valla’s Neophytes is a video installation about loss of territory, roots and identity. The installation echoes the heritage of the Native American people of the Ohlone tribe, who lived in dome-shaped huts for thousands of years, until Spanish conquistadors burnt down their villages, forced the tribe to take Spanish sir names and convert to Christianity. By building a domelike, temporary structure as a display for the video, this heritage is connected to the present day where families are forced to evict their homes in San Francisco due to extreme living costs. Neophytes is a moment of reflection on the cultural consequences of these movements.

Wood-burning disturbed quotes from the story books that were read to us by our elders into the wooden rungs of a rope ladder, Nancy Winkelmann’s work takes on the concept of escaping to a refuge by climbing through the harsh realities of life. The steps lead upwards to the idea of a safe haven found within the tree houses of our childhood, but also exists within each of us in adulthood.

Carl Martin’s Heavy Reader installation features a familiar floor perforated by a series of books after violently falling from the sky, altogether telling the story of a man, and inviting the viewers in his surreal home.

For his work Territory, Valentin Ruhry installed an ensemble of flags along the space’s fence, made out of found camping fabrics that he sewed together, suggesting notions of territoriality, property, and frontiers linked to this enclosed exhibition space.

Finally, a contribution by an anonymous artist, pre-existing to the exhibition, reminds of the area’s temporality and daily use.

What was previously the path of the former San Francisco Central Freeway, is today, on August 1st, the site for transient havens created by each of these installations. As remnants of past, present, and future urban fabric of the neighborhood, each invites viewers to pause and rethink about the local urban issues in Hayes Valley, San Francisco, and the Bay Area at large, leaving in turn an imprint in the visitors’ minds.

This temporary exhibition is organized by members of The Invisible Institute, a class of SFAI‘s public education program.

Stammtisch Ride Season with Biergarten and Rapha Cycle Club

According to the Rapha Cycle Club, “‘stammtisch’ translates from German as ‘regulars’ table’, the gathering (and drinking) spot for locals in a neighborhood pub.” It’s fitting then that the weekly Stammtisch Ride ends at Biergarten to refuel with a pint or two of Weihenstephan hefeweizen.

The 2-hour ride happens every Thursday during spring and summer. Meet at Rapha Cycle Club in the Marina at 6pm and follow the banded schmetterling to end at Biergarten at 8pm.

Weekly Bike Ride with Aether Apparel

PROXY has become something of a nexus of cycling activity in San Francisco, what with SoSF Bike Tours and Biergarten leading the way with boutique tours of the city and evening rides that end with beer, respectively. It should be no surprise, then, that stylish performance retailer Aether Apparel has gotten into the mix with a weekly Friday morning bike ride. Riders meet at Aether at 7:30am and roll out at 8, just enough time to grab a cup of La Libertad from Ritual or an Alpha Green from Juice Shop.

Half Hitch Goods X Georgette Crimson Launch

The last time Half Hitch Goods rolled into PROXY, owner Carrie Caillouette was first struck by a bunch of motorcyclists gathered in front of Aether Apparel for the first monthly #AETHERmoto ride. The mass of leather-clad biker dudes parted like the Red Sea and Carrie pulled in, only then to be struck by a second observation: at a critical maneuvering juncture,  her truck wouldn’t go into reverse. Good-natured as always, Carrie pulled nose-in to a space and made needing a new transmission into a metaphor for moving forward and not looking back. We’re on board with that.

We’re happy to welcome Half Hitch Goods to PROXY again for the launch of Georgette Crimson, an eclectic womenswear label “built on the everyday curiosities and little inspirations we stumble upon”.  The Rolling Shoppe will be parked at PROXY from 11am to 5pm.
