In-Between Places: Korean American Artists in the Bay Area

IN-BETWEEN PLACES: KOREAN AMERICAN ARTISTS IN THE BAY AREA
MILLS COLLEGE ART MUSEUM
SEPTEMBER 13-DECEMBER 10, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 16, 6–8pm

Mills College Art Museum (MCAM) is pleased to present In-Between Places: Korean American Artists in the Bay Area featuring new work by Jung Ran Bae; Sohyung Choi; Kay Kang; Miran Lee; Youngjune Lew; Nicholas Oh; Younhee Paik; and Minji Sohn. The artists featured in In-Between Places reveal the reality and complexities of being a Korean American artist in the Bay Area—a location that has served as a gateway for Korean culture and a bridge between Korea and the West.

Since the beginning of the Korean diaspora, many Korean Americans have described their cultural identity as occupying an in-between space. Existing bi-culturally, on a median of “otherness” within a Korean and Western purview, Korean American artists often lack the affirmation of owning and belonging to a singular cultural vernacular.

This intersection of identities impacts how the work of Korean American artists is critically and popularly received. In Korea, Korean American art is often dismissed as American and or marginalized as specifically Korean in the United States. In-Between Places acknowledges the infinitely evolving and nuanced ways Korean Americans interpret and express history, culture, and art. Reflecting on the relationship of Korean American artists to artmaking in the Bay Area, the exhibition offers fresh considerations on the intricacies of cultural identity.

New works, commissioned specifically for this exhibition, embrace Korean and Western, traditional and contemporary approaches to art making. Painting, drawing, ceramics and bojagi (traditional Korean cloth wrapping) are represented alongside video, performance, and an art installation that incorporates beosun, (traditional socks worn by women). In-Between Places claims space for Korean Americans within the landscape of contemporary art and reflects

Some Things That May Be Helpful At Some Point : New work by David Fullarton

Saturday, October 21st, 2017 - Sunday, December 10th, 2017, Opening Reception: Saturday, October 21st 6-9pm, Gallery Hours: Wed-Sun 12-7pm 

The Compound Gallery
1167 65th st. Oakland, CA 94608 

In Oakland

These are grim times. We live in a world overflowing with stupidity, intolerance, and pointless suffering. David Fullarton’s latest body of work represents a stubborn refusal to treat the seriousness of our malaise with any respect. In an ambitious, but probably futile attempt to compete with the ridiculousness of reality, these mixed media assemblages continue his ongoing quest to find our atrocious situation amusing. This is art that laughs in the face of our anxieties and ruthlessly skewers our fears, failures and shared fragility. Mr Fullarton apparently intends his droll dissection of the ever-increasing absurdity of modern existence to be of help in our struggle to cope with the human predicament. And in times like these we can use all the help we can get.


Exhibition duration : October 21-December 10th

The Royale By Marco Ramirez
Directed by Darryl V. Jones
Bay Area Premiere
Starts November 3

From Marco Ramirez, the award-winning writer of the hit TV series Orange Is the New Black and Sons of Anarchy, comes a tightly constructed, viscerally theatrical tale that has seen acclaimed productions in New York, London, Chicago, and Los Angeles. It’s 1905, and Jay “the Sport” Jackson is ready to take on both the current heavyweight champion and the entrenched discrimination of the Jim Crow era -- but is America ready for him? The Royale is inspired by the real-life experiences of Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight world champion. With rhythmic and ingenious staging, Ramirez's contenders never physically engage in the ring; instead it's The Sport's internal struggle that delivers a sharp and surprising impact.

"Fast, furious & ingenious." —Time Out New York

This exhibition presents new work by Bay Area photographer Jennifer Brandon, shown in conjunction with rarely seen photocopies and photographs by the ground-breaking visual artist Jay DeFeo. Featuring approximately 40 works, including photograms, photographic collages, photocopies, and gelatin silver prints, this exhibition explores each artist’s interest in the intersection of physical materials and photographic process.

An evening of original uplifting, succulent and daring JazzSoul standards by Valerie Troutt and her JazzSoul Quartet.

“This age of American Idol and Disney-approved singers has no room for a big, brassy woman who takes no shit and can really belt one out. From Big Mama Thornton to Etta James all the way to Patti Labelle, every generation has had one but ours. It's like when Chuck D asked all those years ago, "Who stole the soul?" Thank goddess for Valerie Troutt.... During college Valerie was mentored by jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves, Troutt approaches R&B standards, house grooves, and her original socially conscious jazz and soul compositions with the verve of the missing masters.” -D. Scot Miller, S.F. Weekly.

Voices of Music: Leonardo da Vinci: A Musical Odyssey

Sunday, March 4th, 2018, 7:30pm

St. Mary Magdalen
2005 Berryman

In Berkeley

Voices of Music presents “Leonardo da Vinci: A Musical Odyssey," which explores the music that Leonardo da Vinci would have heard in the cities in which he lived. There is no surviving music that Leonardo da Vinci played or composed, but through the writing of Giorgio Vasari and contemporaneous accounts we know that Leonardo was an acclaimed virtuoso on the lira da braccio, a type of bowed string instrument, and that he loved to accompany himself as he sang improvised poetry. Proficiency in music was highly valued in his time alongside the study of art and architecture. Da Vinci’s life coincides with a burst of activity in music, including the invention of music printing by Ottaviano Petrucci in Venice as well as the patronage in the 1480s of Lorenzo de’ Medici in Florence. Our research for this project includes a variety of musical forms, including frottole, sung poetry, music from the Medici and Sforza courts, the circle of Isabella d’Este, and the Parisian chansons from da Vinci’s final years in France. Join us for our story which will take you on a journey through Leonardo’s musical world, illustrating the synergy between science and art along the way.

Featuring Lawrence Rosenwald, poet and story teller; Stefanie True, soprano; Deborah Rentz-Moore mezzo soprano; Shira Kammen, lira da braccio and many others.
