When we posted about Creators Project SF in January, we didn’t know too many details past the when (March 17-18) and the where (Fort Mason in San Francisco). But we were confident in touting the sheer excellence of the event, what with the New York edition flaunting Karen O’s psycho-opera “Stop the Virgens,” a massive 40×40 ft. light structure (and other installations), plus performances by Justice, Florence and the Machine and more.
Now, we’ve got our hands on the SF lineup, and it’s everything we wanted it to be. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will join Karen O to headline on the musical side, with the recently de-LCD Soundsystemized James Murphy and Squarepusher (just his second US performance in the past seven years) rounding out the event’s biggest names. Also on the bill: United Visual Artists + Scanner, Chris Milk, The Antlers, SoSoLimited, Health, Teen Daze, Zola Jesus, and Shabazz Palaces.
If you can tear yourself away from the music, you’ll find yourself in a playground of interactive art and technology. The United Visual Artists will bring “Origin”–their massive audiovisual sculpture which traveled from New York–and Chris Milk’s “Our 3 Stages of Flight” will span three walls of a Fort Mason building. Also on the visual side: SoSoLimited, Quayola, Superuber, Casey Reas, Zigelbaum + Coelho, Scanner, Minha Yang, Social Print Studio + Intel Labs, and Mira Calix.
The best part: thanks to sponsorships by VICE and Intel, the Creators Project is totally free. Just RSVP through the Creators Project website and show up at Fort Mason early (they warn that RSVP doesn’t guarantee entry).
