Event description
LANDS END: THE FORMER CLIFF HOUSE IS TRANSFORMED BY 27 INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS IN EXHIBITION ADDRESSING CLIMATE CRISIS 11/07/2021-03/27/2022

About this event

In its ongoing commitment to addressing urgent issues through the presentation of art about place, the FOR-SITE Foundation, in partnership with the National Park Service, presents Lands End (November 7, 2021, through March 27, 2022). Curated by FOR-SITE Foundation Executive Director Cheryl Haines, this timely exhibition will be installed in the former Cliff House and brings together work by 27 contemporary artists and collectives from around the globe to reflect on the fragility of the planet’s health and its manifold intersections with critical issues, from human rights to racial equity, sustainability, and forced migration. “We can no longer deny that the natural world is more vulnerable than ever to human impact,” says Haines. “Our ability to address the evidence of this—in spite of flagrant disbelief, hubris, and resistance to the realities of climate change—is now of the greatest import. The former Cliff House, a structure and site emblematic of the city of San Francisco, provides a powerful and dramatic context for communicating the perils of climate change as brought forward by artists, who are often on the vanguard of social change. Through their work, artists offer hope and possibility in the face of crisis.” New commissions and recent works in various media—sculpture, painting, textile, installation, and video—will be presented throughout the dining establishment, which has been temporarily closed since December 2020. Areas typically off-limits to diners are open to all visitors. Artists have activated dining rooms, bar spaces, kitchens, prep areas, and even trash rooms, with the exhibition connecting each space in compelling and unexpected ways. This contemplative labyrinth provides unique encounters with the landmark site, and artists’ close explorations of climate, crisis, and ecological sensitivity.

You can choose the date of your visit and a 30-minute entry slot. A maximum of 25 visitors can enter the exhibition every 30 minutes; if you miss your entry time, we will be unable to admit you. Once you are in the building, you can stay as long as you like. We admit in the exhibition only the visitors with a timed-entry tickets.

Only 49 individuals are allowed in the building at the same time.

The health of visitors and staff is our utmost priority. Given the new surge of COVID-19 cases nationally and internationally, we now require all visitors 12 years of age or older to present proof of vaccination and a photo ID upon entrance. This new requirement goes into effect as of December 23, 2021. Face mask remains mandatory for all visitors 2 years of age or older.

Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, FOR-SITE reserves the right to temporarily close the Lands End exhibition and cancel your reservation(s). FOR-SITE will notify you 24 hours in advance by email through Eventbrite.

Please check your email (including your SPAM folder) the morning of your confirmed visit, thank you.

Thank you for your understanding and supporting our efforts to keep all visitors safe.
