Operation: Restore Defenestration @1:AM Gallery

San Francisco’s 1:AM Gallery opened a most unique show in support of the rehabilitation of their neighbor, the fantastic site-specific “Defenestration,” a huge multi-storied building, whose furniture resides on the outside, wriggling and escaping their confines. The project, an unofficial SF landmark since it’s birth in 1997, was created by conceptual artist Brian Goggin with help from a nefarious crew of never do-wells and cohorts. Check out extensive coverage of the opening night, which included Brian Goggin and the nefarious John Law rappeling off the side of the building, on Laughing Squid.
