Inflatable: Expanding Works of Art


  • Exploratorium, Pier 15 Pier 15 The Embarcadero San Francisco, CA 94111 USA (map)

Step inside and wonder at gigantic, fantastical air-filled artworks at Inflatable. Spread across our indoor and outdoor galleries, these ephemeral sculptures include otherworldly organisms by Jason Hackenwerth and Shih Chieh Huang, a forest of cushiony columns by Jimmy Kuehnle, an inflatable insect-eye room from Pneuhaus, and Amanda Parer’s monumental humanoid figures peeking around corners. Fueled by the whimsy and lightness of balloons, the artists of Inflatable have infused their creations with a technology, scale, and creative complexity that expands our vision of what contemporary art can look like.

Inflatable was curated by Christopher Jobson, founder and editor-in-chief of Colossal.
