Yerba Buena Center for the Arts: #3 High Impact Nonprofit in the Bay Area for Arts & Culture

September 22nd, 2010 by Erinn Andrews Leave a reply »

As one expert put it, our #3 Bay Area arts and culture nonprofit, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) “presents exciting, risky, no-one-else-is-going-to-show-this-work exhibitions and programming.” YCBA has been impressing crowds since 1986.

Read this review from one enthusiastic supporter and art-viewer:

I am a frequent and loyal audience member for YBCA’s performing arts and film and video programming. There is nowhere else in the Bay Area where I can experience such adventuresome and accomplished work from around the world.

Each year I see daring experimental theater and contemporary dance nearly to my heart and mind’s content. Recent offerings from Japan, Uzbekistan, Mexico and London, as well as all the heavy hitters from around the US, enrich me enormously and make me glad and hopeful about art’s capacity for intellectual and socio-aesthetic inspiration. The performing arts series, as does the film and video, presents a terrific balance of local as well as national and international work. Both programs, along with the visual arts program’s Bay Area Now exhibitions, actively support the best of Bay Area art-making with the performing arts series commissioning new local dance theater works.

The film series also deserves special commendation for a bold curatorial vision, unearthing rarely seen treasures and some of the best independent international filmmakers that also inspire. Recent screening of television films by Michael Haneke, a retrospective by Argentina’s Lucrecia Martel, and Bay Area premieres of works by Mexico’s Carlos Reygadas and Thailand’s Apichatpong Weerasethakul, and the beautiful and only film by Jean Genet are just some of the highlights of the film programming. In other words, YBCA is one of the things most central to my life in San Francisco and is one of the main reasons I make the sacrifices I do to live here. YBCA definitely makes it worth it.
