On Saturday, October 12th, ATA Gallery’s OTHER CINEMA presents MISSION SCHOOL, a program, in conjunction with San Francisco Art Institute, dedicated to the indigenous street-art movement of the Mission District, and honoring the memory of Margaret Kilgallen. A portion of all proceeds from the night will be donated to the Asha Kilgallen-McGee Fund.

The feature doc, Josh and Ralph Ackerman’s Widely Unknown, is a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the NYC “break-through” of the now-famous Mission School. This hour-long doc chronicles that historic Deitch Gallery exhibition. Composed of installation views, opening scenes, and thoughtful interviews with Rigo, Barry (Twist) McGee, Chris Johanson, Buz Blurr, and Alicia McCarthy, this seminal material, mostly shot by Josh’s artist-father, Ralph (with help from Vanessa Renwick), took years to finally gel, after Ralph’s own untimely death.

Bill Daniel appears in person to ground our regional aesthetic, with cameos of other street artists, including Swoon, Futura, Doze Green, and Ron English.
