UPLOAD.gif is ALL AGES, Must be 21+ to drink at the cash bar.

UPLOAD.gif is a partnership between New Hive and Gray Area. http://newhive.com/upload The exhibition + event series will celebrate the Animated GIF! Spanning 26 years, GIFs are now one of the oldest image formats on the web. An in-between medium that is lighter than a video and heavier than a photo, animated GIFs occupy a unique position as a fundamental part of the Internet, web art and pop culture.

From now until October 7th we will be accepting submissions for Upload.gif, an urban outdoor exhibition
which will transform a vacant parking lot into an Animated
GIF playground. We’ll blast your original GIFS for all to see
among the work of other innovators, bringing together more than just memes.

No matter where you live in the world you can take part in
having your original artwork projected on larger than life
walls in the center of San Francisco. Your work will also be
exhibited online in a permanent #Upload collection. From
raving cats to revolutionary statements, let THIS be YOUR
blank canvas and let’s paint the street in GIFS.

Not a GIF artist but want to learn?! Awesome, we are
going to have plenty of workshops over the weekend in
advance of the party.
