This spacious gallery space in the Mission District is perfect for Exhibitions and Experimental Events.
Built as a union meeting hall in 1914, The Lab's 3,000 square foot space was recently restored to reveal its original hardwood floors, a wall of windows, and industrial steel beams. Acoustic ceilings, blackout blinds, flexible track lighting, and a Meyer Sound system give the historic space its modern edge. All rentals directly support the programmatic mission and operational maintenance of The Lab, and most importantly, the artists we work with.
Located 1/2 block from the 16th and Mission BART station, The Lab's wheelchair accessible space is great for groups of up to 200 standing or 150 seated. The 50 x 50 square foot main gallery can be made more intimate – four 10 x 8-foot moveable walls allow for flexible spatial configurations, sound baffling, and an extra 64 feet of wall space.
Previous uses of space include industry events such as Dropbox, Red Bull, San Francisco International Film Festival.
