MANIFEST DESTINY ARTISTS WALK – Sat 7/14 @ 2pm

with David Buuck, Sarah Fontaine, and Christian Nagler

Saturday, July 14

2:00 – 4:00 PM

MEET IN FRONT OF HOTEL DES ARTS at 2:00 pm
447 BUSH STREET @ GRANT

In conjunction with the SoEx Off-Site Graue Award Project by Jenny Chapman & Mark A. Reigelman II, local artists David Buuck, Sarah Fontaine, and Christian Nagler create a walking exploration of Manifest Destiny’s legacy in San Francisco. Chapman and Reigelman’s rustic cabin installation, Manifest Destiny!, is affixed to the side of the Hotel des Arts, occupying one of the last remaining unclaimed spaces of downtown San Francisco. Buuck, Fontaine, and Nagler investigate San Francisco as a contemporary site of westward movement and displacement–a complex migratory hub of people, information, resources, and commodities. We will gather at the site of the cabin and tour the neighborhood, discussing the various historic and contemporary narratives of westward expansion and American romanticism.

DETAILS AND SCHEDULE:
Sarah Fontaine leads a neighborhood walk contemplating the mutability of landscape based on the contemporary and historic influx of populations to California and the underground terrain of the comings and goings of our natural and unnatural resources. Her walk will leave from the Hotel Des Arts at approximately 2:20.

David Buuck writes and performs experimental texts that create a loop between the past and future. He will perform a new text-collage exploring the history of real estate development and land speculation. His performance will begin at 3:00.

Directly across Bush street from the Manifest Destiny! cabin lies the historic AT&T building—former home of the California Theater which was built in 1869 with money from silver mining. Christian Nagler will choreograph a “flocking score”for the group to enact in response to this history. The performative walk begins at 3:30 at the historic AT&T building.
