Social Dream Lab at the de Young Museum

Contemporary culture is awash in the rhetoric of dreams and revolutionary longing. From attempts to revitalize America (the American Dream) and reinvigorate civil rights (the Dream Act) to recent global grassroots movements that imagine a future of social, economic, and environmental justice for all, collective aspirations are being creatively expressed and shared with unprecedented speed and reach. During the month of February 2013, the Kimball Education Gallery will be used as a laboratory for exploring the intersection of individual and shared states of (un)consciousness. Invited guests will include experts from diverse backgrounds who will facilitate dream experiments using both poetic and scientific methodologies. During the month, artists Wilson and Zimmerman will continue research and production for their experimental film, Close the Eyes, as they further examine both personal and collective dynamics of dreaming and its relationship to larger social and cultural issues of our time.

The social dream lab will run from February 6 through March 2, 2013 with a rich line-up of events.
