Art Wall: Edie Fake

UC Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive

The latest commission for the BAMPFA Art Wall, Edie Fake's Affordable Housing for Trans Elders is an open invitation for visitors to consider the exciting complexities of queer space. It is presented as a building façade, Fake's mural visualizes a structure full of surprises. Fake employs architecture as an imaginative site for celebrating the uniqueness of transgender bodies and the lives of non–gender-conforming people.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Art Wall: Edie Fake :

Fake transforms BAMPFA’s great Art Wall with “Affordable Housing for Trans Elders,” a site-specific mural that visualizes a building façade of uncommon beauty and complexity, a proposition the artist refers to as “ecstatic architecture.” Inspired by the real life challenge of helping a trans elder deal with housing insecurity, the work is a provocation to summon new possibilities.
