There are a couple promising events tonight, Friday, May 24th. The first is at Aggregate Space for theie group exhibition “ENOUGH ALREADY” featuring works by Jennie Lennick, Mitsu Okubo, Joshua Pieper, and Daniel Yovino. It’s an exhibition of works that are too cute, too normal, too violent, too sexual, and too boring. Instead of isolating and aestheticizing the beauty of the normal and mundane, these artists are shaking hands with the soul crushing banality of day to day life. It’s the extreme irregularity of each artist’s point of view which binds them in their honesty and awkwardness. The opening is 6-10pm. For more information visit here.
The second event we would like to bring to your attention is at S.H.E.D. Projects in West Oakland. The opening statement for the event is pretty amazing. Read below.
It’s a one-night project by Bailey Hikawa and Erin Jane Nelson. A play written by Erin Jane Nelson will be performed on a set designed by Bailey Hikawa. S.H.E.D. Projects will be open to the public with an open courtyard with bon fires, music, drinks, and the performing arts. Doors open at 7pm and the performance will begin at 9pm.
