For the last few weeks, The Time Is Now
, a graphic art poster show curated by female art collective Femme Cartel, has been exhibiting work at Naming Gallery (335 15th St., Oakland) and August 5 will be your last chance to see it. The exhibition features eighteen pieces, all centered on internalizing the “current cultural moment” by reacting to racial violence and gentrification on local and national scales. Naming Gallery will host two musical performances starting at 6 p.m., including Femme Cartel co-founder Hil Jarger, and neighboring venues will be open until 9 p.m. for an informal 15th Street Block Party. Come to celebrate gender inclusivity in the arts, Oakland pride, and social consciousness.
