The San Francisco World’s Fair of 2007 connects a local socio-political debate with international discussions on the virtues of technological progress and urban development.

The two-day event is fueled by research into the tradition of World’s Fairs, which typically showcase visions of the future, and calls into question just what should be represented in a celebration of change and mobility. Coinciding with the advent of the Third Street Light Rail, the project amplifies controversy around the redevelopment of two neighborhoods that have sometimes been called San Francisco’s “final frontier.”

Curated by the MA Curatorial Practice class of 2007 at California College of the Arts, The San Francisco World’s Fair of 2007 includes new commissions, screenings, broadcasts and presentations by artists, filmmakers and architects, as well as projects initiated by organizations that are based along the Third Street Corridor.
