Satellite Museum of Capitalism

On the heels of its wildly successful inaugural debut in Oakland this summer, the Museum of Capitalism—an institution dedicated to educating this and future generations about the history, philosophy, and legacy of capitalism—appears at Headlands in an exhibition produced specifically for Project Space. Driven by collaborative team FICTLIS, the exhibition presents material evidence, art, and artifacts related to capitalism.

Studio for Urban Projects & Packard Jennings

In conjunction with the opening of The Commons, the Studio for Urban Projects hosts a “Pedal-In” to Headlands' campus featuring a series of talks focused on bicycling as a way of claiming public space from our city streets to our parklands. Modeled after the “Ins” (teach-ins, sit-ins, bike-ins) of the 1960’s and the political action they inspired, the day will connect the history of bicycling, the environmental movement, and social protest to contemporary action. Details and registration are on the Studio for Urban Projects website:

Emotional Arcade

The Emotional Arcade is an introspective obstacle course where experiencers engage in competitive games using their emotions. The Arcade games measure feeling to create a liberating space for exploration. Because there should be at least one place on the planet where unrestrained expression is celebrated. And because it is fun.

In Search of the Truth by Cause Collective

In Search of the Truth is an interactive project comprised of a touring, portable Truth Booth. Iconically shaped like a cartoon speech bubble, it houses a photo booth-like interior that compiles the public’s two-minute video responses as they finish the statement, “The truth is…”. Cause Collective’s members are Hank Willis Thomas, Ryan Alexiev, Jim Ricks, and Will Sylvester.

The 500 Capp Street Foundation

The 500 Capp Street Foundation hosts a “Dumbball-making” workshop modeled after a ubiquitous David Ireland sculptural series that the artist produced from 1976 and that encompasses Ireland’s philosophy of art making. Part art and part meditation, participants in the workshop are encouraged to be truly present in the process of tossing a wet lump of concrete back and forth as the material finds it own shape.
