Independent curator Lance Fung is staging a month-long exhibition in San Francisco’s rundown Tenderloin district, known for both its historically diverse community as well as its poverty and crime. Fung says the aim of organising the show is to present art directly to the working-class residents of the Tenderloin. “We chose the Tenderloin to work in as it remains one of the most authentic areas in the USA,” says Fung. “Despite the mythology of its dangerous nature, there is an ease about the community.”
