Dream Farm Commons is a small, artist run exhibition and project space in Downtown Oakland. It s is a site where radical imagination, visual works, and social practice are happening. We are committed to creative production interchanging across platforms and to new social production. Located in a store front exhibition and project space at 15th and Webster in Downtown Oakland, we make monthly to bi-monthly exhibitions, along with crazy pop ups, dinners, workshops, performances, social practice projects, and mini residencies; additionally, we have a productive co-working loft in our upstairs. The space was founded by three visual artists in May 2018, and is now sustained by a trio of artist/ thinkers.
To us, a commons is a set of shared resources that people can access for various forms of production, within a shared vision. In our case, our shared terrain is radical imagination, art-making, social change and creative production. We generally operate with horizontal conversation and consensus. We have also recently embarked on a larger creative commons with our up the street partner ProArts, sharing resources and hatching bigger connections.
