Please join Lava Mae + Fouladi Projects for the launch of


Coming Clean San Francisco


a multi-media exhibition amplifying the intimate experience of homelessness 

through the artists’ lens.


Opening reception Friday January 13th, 6 -8pm

Exhibition on view January 13 through February 25, 2017

Artists include: Amy Wilson Faville, Elizabeth Lo, Danielle Nelson Mourning, Joel Daniel Phillips, Ramekon O’Arwisters, Yon Sim, Kathryn Spence, and SOUND MADE PUBLIC. 

Coming Clean is a cultural intervention and a first time collaboration between Fouladi Projects + Lava Mae that's based on a shared belief that art – as a cultural tool – has the capacity to elicit a visceral, almost cellular reaction in a way information cannot, challenging us to push beyond the stereotypes that frame our current perceptions.

The exhibition features a group of well-established Bay Area artists, using a range of mediums including photography, drawing, collage, fibre art, film, sculpture and a sound experience.

The artwork invites us to look a little closer, listen, imagine not having a place to call home – evoking a deeper view and a greater connection to our shared humanity.

Coming Clean San Francisco at Fouladi Projects is part of Lava Mae’s larger Coming Clean program, whose goal is to shift the broader community’s relationship with people moving through homelessness from “other” to empathy, from distant to engaged, creating the foundation for a more resilient and vital City.


There will be weekly evening programming at the gallery including a virtual reality experience, a perspective altering Listening Party and a Crochet jam.

We'd love for you to join us with your guests for our opening reception, and invite others to visit our show during its Jan 13 to Feb 25 run!

Art is an essential component of living a full life. It provokes us to see things afresh, exalts our senses and connects us to each other and the world in which we live. 

Fouladi projects offers relevant and inspiring contemporary fine art complimented by carefully curated functional works in an inviting gallery setting. We unite our program with art enthusiasts, whether they are a seasoned collector or a first time buyer. The work continues to span a wide range of mediums including painting, drawing, conceptual sculpture and installation. Through programmed exhibitions, studio visits, artist dinners and performances, we encourage our community to engage in an ongoing integration of art and life. Art fair participation and thoughtful promotion furthers our commitment to supporting our artists and makers on their creative journey and we look forward to introducing them and their work to you.
