On March 12, Pro Arts (150 Frank Ogawa Plaza, Oakland) is inaugurating a new set of programs called Hybrid Series, which aims to dissolve the boundaries between artistic disciplines. The first event will feature SL Morse, a music project led by local percussionist and artist Sarah Lockhart, translating Albert Camus’s The Myth of Sisyphus into Morse Code. Artist Adia Millett will join in to discuss Re-Connect, her solo show of quilts, currently on display in the gallery, in terms of feminist aesthetics and abstraction. Plus, Bay Area poet Sara Mumolo will punctuate the program with readings of her work. Mumolo is the author of Mortar
(Omnidawn, 2013), a book of poetry that, in part, investigates the intersection of art history and gendered body representation through a lyrical deconstruction of nude paintings.
