While I’m Waiting is a group exhibition presented by THINK MAKE TANK Artist Collective opening April 25th, 2019 at
Code & Canvas, 151 Potrero Ave in San Francisco. In this exhibit, thirteen artists grapple with the notion of waiting.
Eviction, Visa, Death, and Amazon boxes... these are only some of the things humans await.
THINK MAKE TANK artist collective is on borrowed time in an old brick paint factory in Potrero Hill—and in this moment in
between, we find comfort in collectively examining the liminal space, the unknown we all struggle with at one point or
another. The seed of the exhibit began with an all too familiar conversation about artists’ eviction, and inspired many
Waiting implies that we are on hold, that something waits to begin or end. A woman waits for her fiancé to gain entry into
the country so she can begin a life together. A woman is obsessed by waiting for death, counting down the heartbeats to the rest of her life. Another waits for her amazon boxes arriving at her doorstep daily as the currency of our times in San Francisco and America. Participating in this show are thirteen international and Bay Area artists: Anna Landa, Biagio Scarpello, Bonny Nahmias, Cera Hensley, Chloe Ghillani, Esmeralda Da Costa, Jennifer Lothrigel, Kevin Corcoran, Seah, and the tank’s members Alex Nichols, Jorge Bachmann, Magali Charmot, and Mushi Wooseong James. Each artist explores what they’re waiting for and how they’re waiting for it through multiple mediums.
The public is cordially invited to attend an opening
reception on Thursday, April 25th from 6:30-9pm
featuring a durational performance with Seah. This
exhibition is free, come join us for drinks and Argentinian
