Non-View of the Lake from Underground

Non-View of the Lake from Underground Start Date: Friday 4/5/2019 — End Date: Friday 5/3/2019 Admission:Free Non-View of the Lake from Underground Space by Torreya Cummings 5 April – 4 May 2019 In 1873, Collis P. Huntington, partner in the First Transcontinental Railroad, commissioned a painting of Donner Lake. He wanted to commemorate the tracks crossing the Donner summit in 1867, a feat of both engineering and sheer human misery. The resulting work by Albert Bierstadt succeeds in romanticising Manifest Destiny and the Sierra Nevada but nonetheless failed to please Huntington, who hoped for a more detailed view that highlighted the railroad itself. Aggregate Space Gallery and Torreya Cummings present Non-View of the Lake from Underground, a collection of landscape leftovers, geologic scraps, photographs, partial environments, and a performance set. These works elevate immersion and complication over a totalizing “view”, using Bierstadt’s View of Donner Lake as a departure point, and creating a new moment that foregrounds the foreground. Opening Reception April 5, 6-10pm Second Saturday Artist Talk April 13, 11am First Friday Event May 3, 5-8pm Gallery Hours Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 1-5pm and by appointment Aggregate Space Gallery 801 West Grand Avenue Entrance on West Street Oakland, CA 94607 510-832-3807 #ASGOakland #installtheunimaginable Aggregate Space is a warehouse and has a similar temperature to the outside; please dress accordingly.

Playwrights’ CageMatch at Town Hall Theatre

Playwrights’ CageMatch at Town Hall Theatre Start Date: Sunday 3/24/2019 — End Date: Sunday 3/24/2019 Admission:$5 Town Hall Theatre in Lafayette, California, is excited to announce our first Playwrights’ CageMatch: BUILDING BRIDGES, on Sunday, March 24, 2019, at 7:00pm. Five Playwrights enter but only one will emerge victorious. Join us as playwrights far and wide square off! Our Playwrights’ CageMatch is a chance for playwrights to show their stuff in an audience-decided live competition. The only requirements for aspiring contributors were that the scenes had to be 20 minutes or less, have no more than four characters with gender parity, and be set in an apartment building in a large city anywhere in the universe; there’s a fire escape, maybe a corridor, and maybe a bridge in the distance. A lovers’ encounter or post-apocalyptic tale, perhaps? We’re looking for creative and elegant back-stories that incorporate the setting into the scene, but the tone, theme or genre was up to the playwright. Town Hall received entries from all over the U.S., and even from New Zealand. Artistic Director Susan E. Evans, THT staff, and volunteers are selecting the top five submissions, and each one gets one rehearsal. The five scenes are presented on March 24th at a live staged reading at Town Hall, 3535 School Street, Lafayette, CA. Our audience will vote by token to determine the winner! Town Hall Theatre, PLAYWRIGHTS’ CAGEMATCH P. 2 of 2 Admission for the Playwrights’ CageMatch is $5 (free to our subscribers), and tokens to vote will be sold for $5.

BARBARA EASLEY-COX & ERICKA HUGGINS IN CONVERSATION WITH DEWEY CRUMPLER Start Date: Thursday 3/14/2019 — End Date: Thursday 3/14/2019 Admission:0 Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Vanguard Revisited: Poetic Politics & Black Futures, SFAI is thrilled to host Barbara Easley-Cox and Ericka Huggins in conversation with faculty member Dewey Crumpler to discuss the Black Panther Party and its continuing relevance. The Black Panther Party’s multifaceted approach to community activism, together with strong political education campaigns, coalitions with local and national organizations, and international relationships built from legacies of organizing within Black communities, created a template for decades of organizing to come. Barbara Easley-Cox and Ericka Huggins worked both locally and internationally for the Black Panther Party and their work continues to be foundational in leading a culture of resistance. Barbara Easley-Cox is a civil rights activist, teacher, and advocate for literacy. She joined the Black Panthers Party in 1967, led the San Francisco branch with her husband and later worked in the New York and Philadelphia chapters. She participated in the Free Breakfast for Children Program, collected apparel for the Free Clothing Program, and aided in other survival programs hosted by the Party. Easley-Cox traveled around the world, spreading chapters and involvement of the Black Panther Party to Algeria and Germany alongside well known Panther Kathleen Cleaver. She continues working as an advocate for community development, poverty, and social justice. Ericka Huggins is a human rights activist, poet, educator, Black Panther leader and former political prisoner. She has lectured throughout the United States and internationally. In 1968, at age 18, she became a leader in the Los Angeles chapter of the Black Panther Party with her husband John Huggins. As a result of her 14-year tenure as a leader of the Black Panther Party (the longest of any woman in leadership), she brings a unique, complete and honest perspective to the challenges and successes of the Black Panther Party and, its significance today.
