Re: “The Truth is Out There: B4bel4b Exhibit Believe the Hype Exposes Ideological Battles Behind Neutral-Seeming Digital Age Info

This looks (to have been) fascinating! Too bad the story was published so late in the run of the exhibit, and so near to the time of the closing event!

Re: “An Oakland Film Series Examines the Black Aesthetic

Hey, I'm Ryanaustin (Curator) and there should be two corrections to the piece.

1. We did not screen Watermelon Woman, instead we screened the shorts of Cecile Emeke

2. The Directors name for Day by Day is Jehnovah not "Jehovah"

Re: “Seven Must-See East Bay Exhibits that Honor the Black Panther Party's Fiftieth Anniversary

I wrote this song last week in honor of the Black Panther Party:

If invited, I will perform it at the anniversary events.

Re: “Seven Must-See East Bay Exhibits that Honor the Black Panther Party's Fiftieth Anniversary

You failed to mention the wonderful exhibit at the Oakland Main Library's Oakland History Room, "Revolution is a Daily Struggle: remembering the Black Panther Party's Social Programs."
The Panthers were fulfilling lots of basic social needs that the local and state governments were not addressing. That's an important part of their legacy. Check out this exhibit!

Re: “'The Black Woman is God' Opens at SOMArts

Is this going to be an annual event?

Re: “'The Black Woman is God' Opens at SOMArts

So excited about this show. A long time coming. We Black Women are finding our voices. Forming Sistar Circles all over the country. Once we remember how to unite our resources for our greater good, the sky is the limit. Empowering. Enlightening. Engaging.

Re: “Esther Traugot's Funeral for Bees

It is unfortunately a popular myth perpetuated by the EcoActivist left that the honey bee is dying or in danger. Since 2006, when the number of commercial colonies was at 2.1 million, and when the meaningless term CCD - Colony Collapse Disorder was coined, there has been a 50% increase in the number of colonies to approx 3 million. The four important metrics in the industry are all up - number of colonies - pounds per colony - total pounds and price per pound - all up significantly. The losses that are being reported are mostly from Newbees, newbeekeepers - who by the way - fewer than 10% stay active in beekeeping for more than three years.

Re: “Alex Oslance's Industrial Decay

I think "pus" has one s, "puss" is something else altogether. That doesn't look like puss.

Re: “Step Right Up to Autobody Fine Art

Auto shops are starting to do a lot of really cool things nowadays. I'm not surprised that they are making these cars, that are already fine art, into an even more collectible piece.These shops can really turn a beat up car into a masterpiece, I wonder if all shops would be willing to do such a thing.

Re: “West Oakland's New All-Female Art Collective

This is all very great for young, female graduates and I'm happy for them. However, let me speak up for the older, mature female artists who did not have the benefit of today's insights and novel attitudes towards female art/artists. What about those of us who somehow navigated a tougher system several years ago but yet manage to hang on to our art practice? What about those of us who somehow manage to balance motherhood and their art? Who somehow manage to work for one's basic survival needs (and their family's) and still do their art? Who have had to keep a day job and still do their art? Whose art have never been significantly recognized or validated by the Art World and yet still keep going? Is today's inclusivity focused only on the young and upcoming? Is the concept of doing art minus the driving ambition of attaining rock star status such a dismal place to be?

Re: “Maria Guzman Capron Makes Clashing Cool

Hi, Do you do write-ups about the events at the Osceola Gallery in Emeryville and the Mythos Gallery in Berkeley?
Recently, the Mythos Gallery has produced art shows of significant quality, from historical themes to the upcoming contemporary abstract work. Osceola Gallery has recently held an open house and I saw works there from mid-20th century that are that are a collector's dream. Both worthwhile art news, Janet Norris

Re: “How to Write Good Poetry Really Fast

Some particularly nice bits from the review:

"Anything avowed to a prescribed notion of worth and beauty was immediately asked to leave."

"The artist doesn't openly theorize about the perceived limitations of literature, but matter-of-factly presents viewers with works that defy their existence."

"A video montage called "How to Write Good Poetry" cements that point pretty well."

Uh huh. As The New Yorker's founder and editor Harold Ross was wont to note on a submission "what mean?"

Am I entirely wrong in thinking that there will soon be a Man Booker Prize for the year's best text?
