OAKLAND MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA ANNOUNCES MAJOR SPRING 2018 EXHIBITION FEATURING THE EVOLUTION OF HIP-HOP

RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom Explores Hip-Hop’s Wide-Reaching Influences on Cultural and Social Movements, Including the West Coast’s and San Francisco Bay Area’s Impacts on this Global Phenomenon

Exhibition to run March 24–August 12, 2018 in OMCA’s Great Hall

(OAKLAND, CA)–Starting from its roots on the streets, before rap, DJing, graffiti, breakdancing, and street fashion launched into mainstream culture, RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom, the Oakland Museum of California’s major Spring 2018 exhibition, explores one of the most influential cultural and social movements of the last 50 years.

Opening in OMCA’s Great Hall on March 24, 2018, RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom uncovers the under-recognized story of how hip-hop changed the world. Delving into the West Coast’s and San Francisco Bay Area’s influences, the exhibition features insights from artists and hip-hop luminaries about how hip-hop continues to provide a platform for creative self-expression, activism, youth development, and education. 

Visitors will discover the beginnings of hip-hop and learn about the significant roles that California, and Oakland, have played and continue to play in hip-hop’s evolution, including its positive influences in youth development and education. Rooted in African American culture, the essence of hip-hop is self-expression and creativity. The exhibition highlights hip-hop’s innovative nature and reveals how the art form continues to be vital today.

Hip-hop’s many aspects–including DJing, MCing, dance, graffiti, fashion and style, knowledge and wisdom, and entrepreneurialism–will all be explored. Details of hip-hop’s origins and its influence on street art and fashion will be showcased in photographs by Martha Cooper, a photojournalist and former New York Post photographer best known for her documentation of New York City’s graffiti scene of the 1970s and 1980s, and Jamel Shabazz, who is internationally recognized for his images of New York City youth culture in the 1980s. Shabazz’s images have been featured across the world at Art Basel in Miami, the Brooklyn Museum, and The Studio Museum in Harlem.

Significant artifacts and objects will be displayed, including original party flyers, rare photographs, and contemporary artworks, including a tapestry by renowned New York-based portraitist Kehinde Wiley, who has recently had a nationally touring museum solo exhibition as well as having recently been commissioned to paint Barack Obama’s official presidential portrait. The exhibition will also feature a dedicated space for reflection and meaning-making, which includes a central reading room, offering select reading material and artifacts that connect hip-hop with its deeper cultural principles.

RESPECT recognizes the sensational essence of a movement that has become a unifying culture throughout the world,” said René de Guzman, director of exhibition strategy and senior curator of art at the Oakland Museum of California. “With this exhibition, OMCA sets the stage for a deeper exploration of hip-hop: the wisdom and style it has brought to many aspects of all our lives, from the language that we use to the clothes that we wear.”

A major part of the exhibition is the Hip-Hop Dojo: a practice, performance, and event space that will come alive with movement and sound. In the space, Museum visitors will be able to explore, learn, and practice hip-hop skills. The gallery features an immersive, multi-projector media environment featuring looping video footage of hip-hop performers and martial artists getting into the flow by Los Angeles-based DJ Mike Relm. Visitors are invited to experiment with the basics of scratching on real beat-making equipment, sit among the bleachers to socialize and play chess, or watch other museum goers perform in this energetic, dynamic space. Visitors can also participate in graffiti-making, and learn breakdance basics by dancing along with expert teachers projected in a shadow dance environment. Talent shows, demonstrations, workshops, and cyphers will be activated within the Dojo throughout the run of the exhibition.

“OMCA is committed to presenting programming that addresses topics of real relevance to our community and that link historic trends to compelling and urgent themes today. In just the past couple of years alone, we’ve presented Altered State: Marijuana in CaliforniaAll Power to the People: Black Panthers at 50; and Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing, all of which attracted record attendance and captured the attention of both local communities and the national museum field,” said Director and CEO Lori Fogarty. “RESPECT will continue this vision for the Museum and for our audiences, in this case with a particular exploration of the influence of Oakland and California on this important form of self-expression and creativity.”

RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom will be on view in OMCA’s Great Hall March 24 through August 12, 2018. There is a $4 charge for this special exhibition in addition to regular Museum admission.

J.B. Blunk: Nature, Art & Everyday Life 

April 21-September 26, 2018

Discover northern California’s best kept secret in design and craft: J.B. Blunk (1926-2002), a mid-century artist whose connection to nature governed his daily life. Inspired by Japanese philosophies of nature and art’s inseparability, and influenced by rural utopian communities, Blunk’s muse and often his source of materials was the beautiful natural environment of Inverness, California. Blunk’s home property was his ultimate work of art, filled with his handcrafted furniture, ceramics, sculptures, and other functional objects used by his family. His remarkable craftsmanship also took the form of large-scale public works of art, including The Planet, a redwood sculpture commissioned by the Oakland Museum of California in 1969. J.B. Blunk: Nature, Art & Everyday Life brings together a comprehensive survey of the artist’s works. See northern California’s landscape anew through Blunk’s eyes, and get inspired to find the beauty of nature and art in your own daily life.

北加州慈濟腎友會即將邁入了第十三個年頭。在過去十年多來, 腎友會有超過七十位腎友換腎, 但也有更多新的腎友加入。我們一面為腎臟病患者的急速增加而憂心, 卻也為愈來愈多的華裔同胞對自己的腎功能的注意與維護而感到安慰。腎友會的醫療團隊與志工始終如一,付出無所求地為所有參加的腎友們服務。當看到腎友們臉上露出的笑容與希望, 就是大家最好的回報。

北加州慈濟腎友會將於二○一八年四月二十二日星期日下午二點至五點,在聖荷西慈濟志業園區舉辦每兩月一次的腎友會聚會。本月的腎友會聚會邀請了服務洗腎中心多年的資深護理師楊素珍來為腎友們講解洗腎方式的選擇。

腎臟衰竭病患均依賴透析治療(俗稱洗腎)維生,唯一脫離洗腎生活的方法是腎臟移植;而腎臟移植需等待數年,因此順利的透析治療是非常重要的。透析治療之成效與生活品質繫於病患之配合度,病患之配合度又以其對透析治療的認知與態度息息相關。 目前透析的方式有在洗腎中心每星期三至四天的血液透析(俗稱血洗)、在家腹膜透析(俗稱腹洗)及在家血液透析三種,病患依個人身體狀況、居家環境、衛生習慣等選擇適合自己的洗腎方式,病患及家屬需要學習相關知識及技能,以便順利進行洗腎,如此就能過著正常快樂的生活。

慈濟基金會係國際性非營利慈善組織,腎友會不分宗教、性別,免費服務華裔朋友。所有志工本著慈悲喜捨的精神,以愛心做無所求的付出,歡迎有心的醫護人員、志工加入助人的行列,共同為身受病苦同胞服務。慈濟基金會北加州分會志業園區地址是2355 Oakland Rd., San Jose, CA 95131。如需更多資訊,請電(408) 457-6969查詢。
