Project Artaud is a location-based project in the Mission district. The project space bounded by 18th Street to the North, by Mariposa Street to the South, Alabama Street to the West, and Florida Street to the East.
Project Artaud is a non-profit, member-run organization. In 1925, the American Can Company built the structure that now houses Project Artaud. In 1971, a group of artists moved into the then-vacant building. This project brings the stories of the artists and art organizations from inside the building out onto the street, providing a glimpse of what it is like to live and work within a concentrated community of artists.

While we can’t re-create the actual gps-enabled walk, here are some audio files that are embedded in the neighborhood, and that you would hear as you “walked the walk.”

“It’s no longer art in your living room; it’s art in the street.”

“People would literally choreograph pauses in their shows for the trains.”
