Curator Lance Fung likes big, sprawling projects. He organized the "Snow Show" for Italy's 2006 Winter Olympics, pairing architects and artists for works made out of frozen materials. His 2008 SITE Santa Fe Biennial brought together 22 artists from all over the world. Now, Fung offers his take on everyone's favorite new arts district: the Tenderloin (see main column). In "Wonderland," 53 artists will create site-specific works throughout the neighborhood, teaming with local galleries like Ever Gold and the Luggage Store Annex. While most participants might be classified as "emerging," there are some familiar local names involved. Roman Cesario of gallery 1AMSF will paint a 30-by-45-foot mural depicting life in the Tenderloin, and Erik Otto is collaborating on "Down the Rabbit Hole," an installation that addresses human trafficking. Other works to watch for include ScreenLab's audio "listening environments," which will be broadcast via local radio at 93.7 FM or cell phone (415-375-8282), and Tenderloin batik artist Amie Krubally's studio show at 125 Hyde.
