Dream Farm Commons
349 15th Street
Dream Farm Commons, an experimental exhibition and project space in Downtown Oakland, has launched a winter art shop! Twenty four of our community of visual and social practice artists have contributed objects of beauty, provocation, poetics and curiosity to BUY! Works can be purchased through our online store www.dreamfarmcommons.com/shop or we invite you to window shop; though the gallery is closed these works will be on view in our tall storefront windows from Dec. 17 – 30th.
All proceeds will assist Dream Farm Commons to stay afloat in this long winter of 2020.
Dream Farm Commons focuses on the creation of socially engaged sculpture and social practice works. The site was founded by three visual artists in May 2018 and is currently creatively sustained by 6 artist/future thinkers. In our work, we claim aesthetic agency, those abilities of the visual, poetic and performative to seep into consciousness and both retrieve the past and foreshadow the future. We build new social production and structures across disciplines and platforms, with daily discovery of “commoning” as verb and practice. Before the pandemic we made monthly to bi-monthly exhibitions, along with social practice projects, mini-residencies, pop-ups, dinners, workshops, and performances. During the pandemic, we have continued programming with multifaceted exhibitions seen and engaged with from the street, virtual events, mail art and mutual aid support.
