Boom: The Art of Resistance 

Random Parts.

Aside from Oakland, I want you to know… at the Oakland Museum of California and Disruptus at Vessel Gallery, there will soon be yet another exhibit open that centers on the fight against gentrification in Oakland. Boom: The Art of Resistance, which will open at Random Parts gallery (1206 13th Ave., Oakland) on Saturday, July 30, will showcase anti-displacement tactics being used in the Bay Area. Organized by prolific art activist Leslie Dreyer (who was partially behind the widely publicized theatrical Google Bus protest in 2014) in consultation with OaklandAwake and Bay Area Society for Art and Activism, the show will feature the Save East 12th Coalition, Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, Qilombo’s Fight for Afrikatown, and many others. Before the opening reception on Saturday (5:30–7 p.m.) there will be a “Gentrifukation Tour” led by POOR Magazine, a nonprofit organization run by self-identified “poor” and indigenous people. As the description states, the tour guides will explore stolen and colonize land in the area while re-inserting indigenous histories and landmarks.
