24-hour telethons, dance parties, sound art extravaganzas, film screenings, and a new record label (called The Label, naturally): Dena Beard has dedicated the last year to reviving the renowned arts institution The Lab and reestablishing it as a beating heart of San Francisco’s art-centric Mission District. Beard is The Lab’s executive director, and was formerly Assistant Curator at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive where she organized exhibitions with D-L Alvarez, Anna Halprin, Barry McGee, among others.
