On the corner of 51st and Broadway, amid all the construction riffraff, is Oakland’s very own Nook Gallery. Lead curator and director of programming Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo and her roommate, local artist Shushan Tesfuzigta, offer up their kitchen nook to women artists, queer artists, and artists-of-color as an inclusive, accessible space to showcase their work. Currently, the gallery is exhibiting Taylor Zarkades King’s evidence; small bits, which opened on April 7 and whose goal is to “claim space for misplaced figures that have fallen out of sight.” The show explores how we are inundated by numbers and statistics during the 24-hour news cycle, and that because of this oversaturation, the figures obscure — much like staples scattered on the ground. In conjunction with samplings of numbers extracted from world news, pins are added to the installation each week.

Saturday, May 13, 5-7pm, free, 310 51st St, Oakland, Facebook.com/NookArtGallery.
