Martin Wong: Human Instamatic at BAMPFA

September 20, 2017 - December 10, 2017
BAMPFA, 2155 Center Street
Berkeley, CA 94720 United States

Martin Wong: Human Instamatic BAMPFA September 20–December 10, 2017 This exhibition surveys the career of Chinese American painter Martin Wong (1946–1999), from his early years painting street portraits in Northern California—where he dubbed himself the “Human Instamatic”—to his role in New York’s gritty downtown art scene in the 1970s and 1980s and his late work in San Francisco before his untimely death from AIDS. Wong was born in Portland, Oregon, and grew up near San Francisco’s Chinatown. After a year at UC Berkeley, he studied ceramics at Humboldt State University in Eureka. During the 1970s, dividing his time between Eureka and San Francisco, he made scroll poems in idiosyncratic calligraphy and designed sets for psychedelic experimental theater groups the Cockettes and Angels of Light.

Imaginary Comforts

October 5–November 19, 2017 By Daniel Handler Directed by Tony Taccone Get Tickets The genius behind Lemony Snicket brings his relentlessly mischievous style to a new play for adults. Sarah’s father is dead, her mother is in hysterics, and the new rabbi totally bungled the funeral. To further the absurdity, the ghost of a rabbit hops into her life, pushing her to confront her deepest issues. Fantastical and wise, hilarious and sobering, Imaginary Comforts celebrates ordinary people trying to make sense out of life in the midst of endless, comedic chaos. More Info Berkeley Rep Main Season · Peet’s Theatre 2025 Addison St, Berkeley, CA 94704

Soundtrack of the 60s

Exhibit at The Berkeley Historical Society  October 8, 2017 - April 1, 2018 While Berkeley did not have the large ballrooms of San Francisco, it had a variety of small clubs and medium sized venues that saw many legendary performances during the decade of the 1960s. The Fall 2017 exhibit of the Berkeley Historical Society will focus on these venues and the unique contribution of Berkeley musicians to 1960s music. The exhibit draws upon the extensive archives of Country Joe McDonald, as well as little known photographs from the Historical Society and several private collections. From small folk singer gatherings in private homes to public stages, Berkeley provided a rich milieu of opportunity for cross genre inspiration and creativity. Country Joe and the Fish, the Joy of Cooking and Creedence Clearwater Revival all had their start in Berkeley. A timeline of major national and international events will provide context for local musical developments. Other parts of the exhibit will focus on local recording studios, the Berkeley Folk Festival, the rock scene, rhythm and blues, the role of music in the protest movement and the career of Country Joe McDonald. Clothing and other artifacts of the period will also be on....
