About the Wattis

The CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts is a nonprofit institution established in 1998 in San Francisco at California College of the Arts. It serves as a forum for the presentation and discussion of international contemporary art and curatorial practice.

Through groundbreaking exhibitions, the Capp Street Project residency program, lectures, symposia, and publications, the Wattis Institute has become one of the leading art institutions in the United States and provides an active site for contemporary culture in the Bay Area.


The CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts moved from its original location at 1111 Eighth Street in San Francisco to the Kent and Vicki Logan Galleries at 360 Kansas Street (between 16th and 17th Streets) in a building acquired by the college in 2013.

The building, newly renovated by architect Mark Jensen, contains galleries as well as event space. The event space will be shared between the Wattis and CCA. The galleries are fully wheelchair accessible.
