Timed to coincide with the reopening of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on May 14, and following the recent news of plans for a Gagosian outpost across the street from the museum, Chelsea contemporary art dealers Anton Kern and Andrew Kreps have teamed up to launch a pop-up gallery space in the tech-friendly city.

The temporary gallery will be located at 1275 Minnesota Street in San Francisco’s “Dogpatch” district, reports Ryan Steadman at the Observer. The Minnesota Street Project was founded by entrepreneurs and avid art collectors Deborah and Andy Rappaport and, as it states on its website, “seeks to strengthen the San Francisco arts community” via offering “affordable and economically sustainable spaces for art galleries, artists and related nonprofits.”

Deborah told the SF Chronicle last year that their project  “needed to happen fast or everybody would have left, and it would have been impossible to get them back—either gone out of business completely or moved to L.A. or New York or Sheboygan (Wis.) because the rents here were too high.”

A collaborative exhibition at the 100,000-square-foot space will open April 28, featuring work by a who’s who of current contemporary stars, including Ricci Albenda, Andrea Bowers, Anne Collier, Roe Ethridge, Mark Grotjahn, Eberhard Havekost, Goshka Macuga, Chris Martin, Matthew Monahan, Robert Overby, Wilhelm Sasnal, Michael E. Smith, Hito Steyerl, Padraig Timoney, Erika Verzutti, and Pae White.

An opening reception will be held April 28 and the exhibition will continue through May 21.
