Community Conversation Series: Sampling Oakland —The Reality and Politics of the 2nd City
Tue, Jul 18, 6:30 pm • Screening Room • FREE
A growing number of artist-run galleries, performance spaces and collective environments are creating a bustling community that is putting Oakland on the map as a location that fosters artists to present works on an international scale. Join the artists/curators from the Sampling Oakland exhibition in conversation with Svea Lin Vezzone, founder of Swarm Studios and former program director of Pro Arts; photographer Katherine Westerhout; and Marcel Diallo, founder of the Black Dot artists collective and organizer of Oakland’s Village Bottoms Cultural District. The panel will explore issues concerning Oakland’s urban development, gentrification, and offer strategies for artistic community collaborations.
Seating is limited, please RSVP to csweed [at] ybca.org or call 415.978.2700 x111.
