Dena Beard, newly appointed executive director of The Lab, has been working hard to give the experimental art space the push it needs.
To raise money The Lab recently hosted a 24-hour telethon and it was a huge success. More than 2,300 viewers tuned into YouTube to watch a live stream, according to Beard. She said they surpassed their goal and made approximately $57,000. During an internship, students work on their own project and take ownership over a certain part of The Lab, according to Beard. Interns get familiar with installation work, selling and marketing inquiries, art language and what is required to put on exhibitions. Beard said interning is a very important learning experience as an artist.

Dena Beard, the executive director of The Lab, a combination art gallery and performance space that bills itself as "a safe space for dissonance in San Francisco," will also be at the fair.
The Lab's programming involves four residencies per year, ranging from artists creating performances on the "machinations of capital" in the alcohol, sugar, and tobacco industries to the history of 21st Century guitar, exploring forms from experimental to folk. When describing the work she'll bring to the fair, Beard says, "What we try to do is have as much energy and animation in our media presentations as possible.

I spoke recently with Dena Beard, Director of The Lab, about this new initiative.
Hence this new initiative at The Lab, in which Beard will be putting her money where her mouth is (pun very much intended). By providing the artists with this sizable stipend and keys to its facilities, The Lab will essentially be paying artists to live and work for a set period of time. And considering The Lab is a nonprofit endeavor without the sizable endowments or top-dollar donors that other arts institutions have, it needs your help to accomplish this goal. Direct fundraising has a visceral impact, too, on the audiences served by its art, explains Beard. "In many ways, [crowdsourcing] is enormously important for the sense of complicity that we need for the work that we do," she says. Beard reflects: "Looking at the numbers - we did give more than a third of our budget to artists [in 2015].

So, I talked with Beard to find out more about the telethon and why everyone should stay up all night.
Without further adieu, the probably soon to be re-titled Executive Director of The Lab, Dena Beard, answered some of my questions.
