‘Deep Down and Building Up’

March 23–25, 2012
Noonan Building, Pier 70, San Francisco, CA

The inaugural Stairwell’s exhibition showcased new site-specific works by artists Maggie Haas and Carrie Hott. Through sculpture, drawing, and installation, Haas and Hott expanded upon their individual practices within the shared space of a stairwell in Pier’s 70 Noonan building. Their works addressed material accumulation, the measurement of spaces real and imagined, and the stairwell as a space in which we both move and rest.

The Noonan Building is a former shipyard office built in 1941 now housing studios for artists, musicians, filmmakers, and designers in San Francisco’s historic Dogpatch neighborhood.
