White Fungus was the magazine-in-residence at Kadist Art Foundation in San Francisco. White Fungus conducted research in the Bay Area and held two release events for the first edition of its 13th issue. The first event was at Kadist and featured a conversation between science fiction authors Ron Drummond and Kim Stanley Robinson about the possibility of establishing human settlements on Mars. Drummond also read from his essay/thought experiment “The First Woman on Mars”, which features in White Fungus #13. The second event was held, and the Lab featured live performances by Wang Fujui, Betty Apple, Samin Son, Scott Arford, and Mason Jones.
