Belewe

Through Aug. 30
<i>Belewe</i>
Kala Art Institute’s latest off-site exhibit is a group show at the Berkeley Central Arts Passage (2055 Center St.) titled Belewe, which roughly translates in folk etymology to “to betray.” The show brings together artists who investigate things that stray from the norm, venturing into the interstitial mental spaces that are so often ignored. One of the most eye-catching works is Nyeema Morgan’s “Untitled” (from the installation I, Rhinoceros), which features three cast resin hands emerging from a patterned wall and holding out white ceramic vases. Morgan, who is based in New York, is interested in epistemological hierarchies and the way that cultural knowledge is passed on to viewers through artifacts. Julia Goodman’s hand-made calendar is made from rough paper pulp with protrusions that represent the moon cycles of the months following her father’s death. Ben Bigelow’s contribution is a startling large-scale light box that features a cherry pie smashed against glass, effectively pranking the viewer with a pie to the face. Other artists include Matt Chavez, Veronica Graham, Boris Scherbakov, and Lucy van Limburg Stirum. Altogether, the works lead the viewer through an exciting array of unusual observations.

Lyrics and Dirges

Third Wednesday of every month, 7:30 p.m.
510-649-1320
Lyrics and Dirges
has been bringing a hand-picked selection of prominent and emerging writers to Pegasus Books Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on the third Wednesday of every month. Hosted and curated by Rad Dad zine editor Tomas Moniz and Berkeley Poetry Festival organizers Sharon Coleman and MK Chavez, the series aims to provide a picture of the diverse Bay Area literary landscape by gathering different types of writers on the same stage. “We’ve paired slam poets with writers of erotic memoir; we’ve highlighted writers published by mainstream presses, hard core zinesters who still staple each issue, comics artists, and playwrights,” Moniz wrote in an email. For its fourth anniversary edition, the series is hosting authors Virgie Tovar, Daniel Riddle Rodriguez, Matthew Zapruder, and Aimee Suzara. Though Lyrics and Dirges’ lineup is always eclectic, Tovar promises an especially memorable performance. Author of Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion, Virgie Tovar travels the country preaching the motto “Lose Hate Not Weight,” and serving up refreshingly raw lectures and readings concerning body politics, sex, and identity. She fits the bill for Lyrics and Dirges nicely, which also aims to represent socially engaged writers who share perspectives that are relevant to their communities. free
