ICA SF Homecoming 2024: Discard Disco
Thursday, September 12th, 6-10pm
Hosted at Dogpatch Studios, 991 Tennessee St., San Francisco

Celebrate the past, present, and future of ICA SF with our second annual benefit! Inspired by our current and future exhibitions and artists who brilliantly repurpose discarded materials, this year’s party is dedicated to Discard Disco. Get down with hand-me-downs and show up in your vintage glam. Strut the runway during our wardrobe walk off for a chance to win, dance to live DJ sets, eat, drink, and toss your name into the raffle for special prizes.

Inspiring this year’s theme…

Exhibiting artist Suchitra Mattai repurposes worn saris into mesmerizing tapestries, and found furniture into fantastical anthropomorphic figures that examine her Indo-Caribbean cultural heritage. Artists like Nari Ward, Moffat Takadiwa, and Anthony Akinbola transform everyday materials like shoelaces, keyboard keys, and durags into inspirational artworks exploring marginalized perspectives in The Poetics of Dimensions opening this October.

Raise funds and party the night away at Dogpatch Studios (991 Tennessee Street, San Francisco). Need a break from all the disco? ICA SF’s current exhibition, Suchitra Mattai: she walked in reverse and found their songs, will be on view all night across the street (901 Minnesota Street, San Francisco). Come view Mattai’s work up close before hitting the dancefloor again.
