Headlands Center for the Arts

Project Space

Housed in two large, light-filled studios in Building 944, Project Space functions as working studios and occasional exhibition space. Open and free to the public five days a week, you’re invited to come by and see what’s happening in there now.

As a component of the Artists in Residence (AIR) Program, Project Space features artists whose work is designed to be socially engaging. Projects often require visitor participation to be fully realized, so we invite you to visit, inquire, and be a part of the process. The works conceived in these studios make creative use of the interiors, often pulling inspiration and source material from the surrounding Headlands wilderness, and highlighting the historic beauty of the spaces themselves.

When not used as a working studio, these spaces often feature curated exhibitions that are thematic or show new work by artists of interest.


Now in Project Space

Johanna Jackson & Chris Johanson | Visual | California | August 7–August 28

Artists Johanna Jackson and Chris Johanson will be working on a collaborative body of work that reveals the objects that create domestic space in a new way. A central feature of Jackson and Johanson’s project will include a participatory workstation for building a blue fabric sky and a latch hook earth. This handcrafted atmosphere will house furniture, ceramic objects, and paintings within its interior. Jackson and Johanson ask that visitors grab a needle and hook to work alongside them on this immersive installation.
