Saturday Cinema: Art & Industry

Saturday, April 25, 2015 • 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 p.m.

Exploratorium, Pier 15 (Embarcadero at Green Street), Kanbar Forum

Included with museum admission.

Here at the Exploratorium, people say that our biggest exhibit is the Exhibit Development Shop. Located at the center of the museum, the Shop gives visitors the chance to see staff at work with the machines needed to create our unique exhibits. To celebrate this transparency of process and the artistry inherent to industry, this Saturday Cinema features two visionary shorts that reimagine factories as sites of elaborate choreographies that just happen to result in useful, omnipresent technology.
