MAYA STOVALL: UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP (GENERAL THEOR

MAYA STOVALL: UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP (GENERAL THEORY OF HISTORICAL MATERIALIST CRITIQUE REMIX) Start Date: Friday 4/5/2019 — End Date: Friday 4/5/2019 Admission:0 In this performance lecture with a live audio score by Todd Stovall, Maya Stovall considers the distinct works on view in Under New Ownership. Demonstrating how and where a research method and an artistic practice can meet, the artists show together how knowledge can be produced via the studio, the street, the interview, and the encounter. Writing too figures here as a central tool, and so Stovall punctuates the event with passages from her forthcoming Liquor Store Theatre book, as well as from a book project co-authored with her brother Josef Cadwell. Cadwell’s meditations range widely across theory and practice, including Stovall’s own, and reference an inside view of the U.S. prison system. Maya Stovall’s Under New Ownership is on view through May 05. Stovall works across the disciplines of performance and dance, moving and still image, installation, and text. She explores the big questions of human existence, creating works that “vividly juxtapose art and life” (The New York Times). Equally an artist and an anthropologist, she holds a Ph.D. in anthropology; a book based on her dissertation, Liquor Store Theatre: Ethnography & Contemporary Art in Detroit, is forthcoming from Duke University Press in spring 2020. This performance lecture occurs as part of SFAI’s Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series (VAS), a public forum for engagement and dialogue with major figures in international contemporary art and culture. Through lectures, screenings, and performances, the series creates intimate connections between SFAI, artists, and the public.

EMORY DOUGLAS + THE POSTER SYNDICATE

EMORY DOUGLAS + THE POSTER SYNDICATE Start Date: Thursday 4/4/2019 — End Date: Thursday 4/4/2019 Admission:0 Emory Douglas + The Poster Syndicate 11am–12pm Talk by Emory Douglas 12–1pm Printing by The Poster Syndicate Emory Douglas was born May 24th, 1943 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has been a resident of the San Francisco California Bay Area since 1951. Douglas attended City College of San Francisco where he majored in commercial art. He was politically involved as Revolutionary Artist and then Minister of Culture for the Black Panther party, from February, 1967 until the Early 1980’s. Douglas’s art and design concepts were always seen on the front and back pages of the Black Panther Newspaper, reflecting the politics of the Black Panther Party and the concerns of the community. The San Francisco Poster Syndicate grew out of the crisis around higher education. We create and screen print original images, continuing the rich history of posters as a form of political messaging. We print the posters “live” at political actions, exhibitions, and on the street, giving away the work for free in order to target a variety of current social and economic justice issues. The Poster Syndicate is here to bring art and design to many different people’s movements in hopes that their message can be heard and seen more loudly.

In the DJ booth will be DJ/trumpeter Will Magid, DJ Masonic (Mason Bates) and Chicago Native Justin Reed spinning jazz inflected house music alongside performances that span the spectrum of well-known pieces by jazz greats, classical-jazz crossover pieces, and original works. Headlining the show is the Oakland-based collective, Jazz Mafia, presenting two of their groups, both of which play mostly original music: Cosa Nostra Strings brings classical elements into what they do, while Heaviest Feather defies genre with a delicious soup with bits of jazz, rock, funk, and hip-hop. Diablo Jazz Company is bringing a jazz combo who will perform works by some of the great American jazz legends such as Duke Ellington and others, paying homage to composers who started it all. And finally the Mercury Soul Orchestra brings to the table some of Mercury Soul’s signature sound presenting works that are two takes on jazz by classical composers: Ebony Concerto by Igor Stravinsky, and Prelude, Fugue, and Riffs by Leonard Bernstein. All of this music is tied together with DJ sets through electro-acoustic interludes composed specifically for the show by Grammy-winning Bay Area composer/DJ and Mercury Soul Artistic Director, Mason Bates.
