All Your Favorite Music is (Probably) Black: An

All Your Favorite Music is (Probably) Black: An online music history course with Mark French Start Date: Tuesday 10/6/2020 — End Date: Tuesday 11/10/2020 Admission:$25/Single class; $125/6-week series Join us for All Your Favorite Music is (Probably) Black, a humorous, highly immersive, and historically accurate course that uncovers the African-American roots of popular music genres—Country, K-pop, Goth, Punk, and more—that appear to be free of African-Americans. If Spotify removed all the music genres pioneered by African-Americans, it would become a nearly empty shell. Yet Spotify (and other music sites) perpetuate the myth that African-Americans can only play hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and the blues. This music culture theft started with segregated song lists and continues today with institutionally racist music algorithms that keep all of us away from great music. My course will right this wrong, introduce you to exciting tunes, and dive deep into the talent and tales of unfairly obscured African-American artists. Plus, there will be jokes.

Steven Dellicarpini’s “Epoch” Art Kiosk Installa

Steven Dellicarpini’s “Epoch” Art Kiosk Installation Comes to Redwood City’s Courthouse Square Start Date: Friday 8/28/2020 — End Date: Sunday 9/13/2020 Admission:free The Redwood City Improvement Association, in partnership with Fung Collaboratives, has unveiled the latest Art Kiosk Installation exhibit by interdisciplinary artist, Steven Dellicarpini. Dellicarpini uses his installation “Epoch” to explore the aspect of time and how time is not inherently good or bad, but rather defined by the experiences of the observer. “Epoch” is a seven-foot-tall sculpture in the form of an hourglass, constructed from a paper-based clay, steel, and polycarbonate. Inside is 1000 pounds of sand that quietly and methodically disappear into the bottom portion over the course of a week. These 8 billion grains of sand represent each person on earth. At the end of the week, Dellicarpini replenishes the sand and the cycle continues. This sculpture is intended to be meditative, watching the sand fall while life, thoughts, and current events continue. This peaceful and calm artwork is a call to action on both personal and community levels. You can view this exhibit 24/7 from the Art Kiosk windows Saturday, August 15 through Sunday, September 13. When viewing the exhibit through the windows, please remember to practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away and wearing a mask.

The Breakfast Group – Virtually in Alameda

The Breakfast Group – Virtually in Alameda Start Date: Saturday 9/12/2020 — End Date: Saturday 9/12/2020 Admission:Free – RSVP for Zoom link Virtual Reception: Saturday, September 12, 2020, 7:30-8:30pm on Zoom Online Exhibition: September 12th – October 30th The Breakfast Group, a cohort of Berkeley Artists who have been meeting weekly over the past decades, convenes digitally at the K Gallery at Rhythmix Cultural Works for an online exhibition and virtual reception! Planned as an exhibition of painting, sculpture, and photography, the work has now shifted to the luminous plane of pixels. This is a group of artists who have been working in their studios, teaching in classrooms, curating in local institutions and then joining every week for discussions of exhibitions they have seen, books they have read, and films they have viewed. They mix the topical of sports with the immediacy of politics and circle back to the ever-present workings of the art world – all with a good cup of coffee in hand. Covering a broad spectrum of visual exploration, this exhibit is an opportunity to explore their work for concerns of the environment, mortality, and beauty. It is a heady mix brought together in this online exhibition. Location: 2513 Blanding Ave Alameda Alameda Contact: Rythmix info@rhythmix.org URL: https://www.rhythmix.org/events/the-breakfast-group/
