Oakland, I want you to know...

SEE EVENT DETAILS
"This exhibition is a microcosm of the conversation about gentrification that’s going on in Oakland and the Bay Area… It amplifies those voices through art and provides another way to enter this complex conversation.” —Artist Chris Treggiari

What does home mean to you? For people in West Oakland, and all over this city, the answers to this question are extraordinarily diverse, richly complex, and surprisingly simple. Oakland, I want you to know… gets at the heart of this important conversation during a time of accelerating social, economic, and demographic change in West Oakland, as seen through the eyes of the community.

Enter into environments inspired by iconic West Oakland buildings—a classic Victorian home, a contemporary loft, a community garden, and the now-shuttered historic Esther’s Orbit Room—that play host to a series of conversations with longtime residents, newcomers, artists, activists, and community leaders. Experience artwork that asks provocative questions about who has the right to space and how land is used, and share your own thoughts about what is happening throughout Oakland right now. Encounter video installations, compelling images, and community book-making projects that capture the voices and tenor of this conversation. A community-led exhibition guided by artist Chris Treggiari and OMCA Curator of Public Practice Evelyn Orantes, Oakland, I want you to know… features work by artists and contributors including Alex Frantz Ghassan, Fantastic Negrito, Julie Plasencia, Angie Wilson, and organizations such as Acta Non Verba, Town Park, and Visual Element. Take part in these moving and complex conversations from the neighborhood—told through the voices of the people, organizations, and businesses that call West Oakland home.
