‘If So What?’ Brings a Mashup of Art and Technology to San Francisco

in Music News by

The inaugural edition of If So, What? (ISW) in San Francisco opened its doors to the press and other VIPs last night for an evening filled with art, technology, music, and champagne.

It served as an opportunity to preview the exhibit which opens to the public from April 27 to 29, 2018 at the Palace of Fine Arts. The art fair features cutting-edge work from leading artists from all over the world including some pretty amazing interactive media art and works created using Artificial Intelligence.

Eclectic music performances will round out the programming for the weekend. Last night we were treated to a couple of sets by Chale Brown & The C.M.E and Photay, which had us dancing the night away. Insider Tip: Do not miss Saturday night’s performance by local Bay Area DJ legend Sake One.

Also on the agenda are prominent leaders from academia and institutions that will share their perspectives on the cultural development in Silicon Valley, such as Dr. Jay Xu, Director & CEO of the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, Larry Rinder, Director of Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, and Susan Sayre Batton, Oshman Executive Director of San José Museum of Art, to name a few.

Check out some photos we took of the event below and be sure to visit this mesmerizing exhibit before it closes its doors on Sunday.
