FIrst Tuesday: @ BOTTOM: a Pop-Up Exhibition

  • Alchemy Collective Cafe 1741 Alcatraz Avenue Berkeley, CA, 94703 United States (map)

Come through April 4th from 7-9pm for the opening night of @ BOTTOM: a Pop-Up Exhibition featuring Gabriel Christian (IG: @genderjuicy), part of the First Tuesday Block Party on Alcatraz Ave. This will be a special early spring night of visions, verbs, and vibrations from POC creators & diviners based in the East Bay.

Oakland-based poetex and performer Gabriel Christian's converted their personal instagram, @genderjuicy, into a year-long open diary, with rigorous, daily entries/poems meditating on ancestry, language, joy, queer sex, longing, death, and, ultimately, black/brown femme/genderfluid livelihood. @ BOTTOM features prints of select pieces from this digital tapestry. As of @ BOTTOM's opening, it'll be on entry 94/365. Follow along, even if you don't necessarily follow directly.

Spoken word poetry performances by Gabriel Christian (@genderjuicy), Sital Muktari (@the_life_of_sital), Carol Chibueze (@carefreeblackauntie), Fabi Fernandez (tumblr: @crillokid) and others. Palm readings & art by Miss Tangq (@misstangq). Tarot readings by Natasha of Blacker Berry Tarot & Botanticals (@enduringflame). Art by Francis Mead (@girasoulll).
