Project Artaud is a non-profit, member-run organization providing housing
and support for artists and arts activities.
In 1925, the property that now houses Project Artaud was built as a tooling
factory for the American Can Company. Over the years it served many purposes.
During WW II airplane parts were manufactured in the large space that would
later become Theater Artaud.
In 1971, a group of artists moved into the then vacant building and named it
after the avant-garde French theater artist, Antonin Artaud (1896-1948). In
1989, full legal status was granted to Project Artaud, thus defining the new
live/work code for the city of San Francisco.
In member public spaces, Project Artaud houses the well respected Southern
Exposure Gallery, A Traveling Jewish Theater, Theater of Yugen/Noh Space,
Contraband Dance Company, Mariposa Studio, Phil Deal Performance Gallery, and
Project Artaud Theater.
