Project Space: Genevieve Quick

Jul 29, 2021   12pm–Aug 27, 2021   5pm
Headlands, Project Space

Work in progress: July 29–August 27; Thursday, Friday, and Sunday, 12–5PM

Genevieve Quick uses tropes of Science Fiction to address otherness and history through performance, sculpture, installation, and video. In her Planet Celadon series, Quick has exaggerated the displacement and alienness of the Asian American diaspora in an absurd intergalactic narrative that features fantastical characters, including narwhals, unicorns, living vases, and an Asianaut. In her Project Space residency, Quick will continue her Planet Celadon series as an interactive video and sound installation that uses the language and format of video games to send a message to the galaxies.


Please note: Headlands resides on in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and must abide by National Park System guidelines. In accordance with National Park Service federal health guidelines, Headlands has established some COVID-19 protocols to help ensure the safety of all our visitors. 

  • Upon arrival, please ring doorbell for admittance. All visitors must sign in and submit that they have no COVID-19 symptoms using this self-check guide.
  • All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a mask over the nose and mouth at all times while indoors—no neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, or face coverings with valves, mesh, or holes. 
  • All visitors must maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet from others. Parties of a single pod may remain together and children must remain with supervising adults at all times.
  • Mask and social distancing guidelines apply indoors; masks required outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained.

Our campus consists of historic buildings which lack central air filtration or circulation systems; Whenever possible, windows will remain open to encourage air circulation. Sanitizing stations are readily available throughout our buildings. Contact tracing is an important part of reducing the spread of COVID-19. Please contact if you test positive for COVID-19 or experience COVID-19 symptoms following your visit.

Project Space is located on the third floor of Building 944 and is currently accessible only by stairs.
