Description

The Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) presents Question Bridge: Black Males on view September 29, 2017 through February 25, 2018. A recent acquisition to the Oakland Museum of California's permanent collection, the project presents black men talking about themes important to their lives today. Also in the collection of the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., Question Bridge has become widely recognized as a work of national significance. OMCA is proud to acquire this groundbreaking and poignant work for its collection.

Hailed as one of the Bay Area's Top Exhibitions in 2012 by the San Francisco Chronicle, the innovative video installation features dialogue between 160 black men recruited from nine American cities and towns, edited in a way so that it appears as if the men were having a conversation. Encompassing themes of family, love, interracial relationships, community, education, and wisdom, Question Bridge presents nuanced portraits of past, present, and future black men in American society.

In 2012, the Oakland Museum of California presented Question Bridge as a video art installation. Since its premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival New Frontier in 2012, the project has been exhibited in over 30 museums, festivals, and institutions nationwide. The presentation featured in OMCA's Gallery of California Art is a chapel-like setting inspiring reflection and group gathering.
