BARGE Treasure Island Tour: Sat 10/11

The Treasure Island Tour this Saturday is fully booked; however there may very well be open seats due to last-minute cancellations so feel free to show up at Yerba Buena Center by noon on Sat if you want to get on the wait list. details below:



This Saturday, as part of Yerba Buena Center's "Ground Scores" exhibit,
BARGE (the Bay Area Research Group in Enviro-aesthetics) will lead a (de)tour of
Treasure Island, as part of its "Buried Treasure Island" installation
currently on view at YBCA. How do we encounter a man-made island and former military
base in the middle of the bay, and how might we envision other ways of seeing in
the midst of hazardous waste areas, boarded-up buildings, and other uncanny sites
and sights? The tour will explore how we view a landscape's past, present, and
possible futures, when many of its features are either destroyed, invisible, or
strangely, hidden in plain sight.

Saturday, October 11, 12-4pm
Tour shuttle departs from (& returns to) Yerba Buena Center - meet in lobby.
There will be some walking, so wear comfortable shoes. It can be quite cold &
windy on the island, so bring layers. In case of rain, some outdoor activities may
be curtailed but the tour will go on!
(De)tourists are encouraged to bring cameras (and/or their imaginations) for counter-postcard
for more information on BARGE and the Buried Treasure Island project, please visit the BTI page.
