Founded in 1984 by interdisciplinary artists seeking a home for experimental work in San Francisco, the Lab has played a critical role in nurturing artists’ careers for decades. Housed in the century-old Redstone Labor Temple in the Mission District, The Lab gives significant funding, time, and space to traditionally underrepresented artists. The Lab is a catalyst for artistic experimentation.
“It is an honor to be part of The Warhol Foundation’s mission to support the visual arts coupled with its commitment to specifically support the voices of women, POC, Native Americans, and LGBTQ. It is simply thrilling to be part of an organization where we get to see these values writ large and implement real change in real life ways in the visual arts community that still so needs to move forward in terms of social justice, equality, and diversity. We put our money where our mouth is. How many institutions actually do that?”
