"Time Capsule of Tomorrows:" Part I of "One Hundred for One Hundred"
"Time Capsule of Tomorrows" is the first exhibition in "One Hundred for One Hundred," a collaborative curatorial project conceived to help commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Temescal Branch Library, consisting of a string of exhibitions and events that deal with art, community, culture, and the humanities. Exhibitions are curated with a priority for art works and projects produced in or around Oakland's Temescal District. Artists who live or work in the local neighborhood will show examples of their work and then engage in dialogue with artists from the greater Bay Area to reflect upon personal and public histories to generate thought about our shared futures. "Time Capsule of Tomorrows" is a one-day only presentation of time-based media work and durational performances that range from the personal to the political. Possibilities and change are postulated as thematic proposals toward shared futures. The past and present are to be abstracted as we take a moment in time to consider how we might work to shape the next one hundred years.
The project is coordinated by a team of local artists, led by Jear Keokham, Robert Borsdorf, Elizabeth Soskin & others as part of a year-long package to help launch the Second Century of Public Service at the Temescal Branch Library.
