Question Bridge: Black Males
Through February 25, 2018
Hailed as one of the Bay Area’s Top Exhibitions in 2012 by the San Francisco Chronicle, Question Bridge: Black Males returns to the Oakland Museum of California this fall. Immerse yourself in intimate videos–woven together and arranged to simulate face-to-face conversations between participants–among a diverse group of 150 black men across the United States. Hear these men answer each other’s questions with exceptional honesty and vulnerability, and share stories, beliefs, and values in a personal portrayal of their lives. Encompassing themes of family, love, interracial relationships, community, education, and wisdom, Question Bridge: Black Males presents nuanced portraits of past, present, and future of black men in American society. Listen, watch, learn, and start your own conversations with this profoundly moving installation.
In 2012, the Oakland Museum of California presented Question Bridge: Black Males, an innovative and widely exhibited video installation from artists Chris Johnson and Hank Willis Thomas in collaboration with Bayeté Ross Smith and Kamal Sinclair. Joining the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Brooklyn Museum, OMCA is proud to acquire this groundbreaking and poignant work for its collection.

Each of the short, student-made films in this exhibition will appropriate and re-imagine a photograph from the Cantor’s collection. Striving to shed new light on the original context of the photographs, the films will be shown alongside the Cantor photographs that served as their inspiration. The short films were made by Stanford students in Assistant Professor of Art Srdan Keca’s “Archival Cinema” class during fall quarter 2017.

Running time: 80 minutes, no intermission
Three writing teachers at a nameless university gather to discuss a student whose behavior is causing serious concerns. Julia Cho’s drama, which opened 3/1 in a new Berkeley Repertory Theatre production directed by Lisa Peterson, may strike audiences as a direct response to last month’s massacre in Parkland, Fla. But Cho actually wrote it after the events a Virginia Tech in 2007, where a student shot and killed 32 people before turning the gun on himself. Staring Daniel Chung and Jackie Chung.
