Sights & Sounds is your weekly guide to the Bay Area arts scene. KALW’s Jeneé Darden sat down with bestselling author Carolina de Robertis to talk about three arts events happening around the Bay Area this weekend.
- Africa State of Mind Exhibition at MoAD
- Indomitas Live Podcast Event
- Friday Nights at the Oakland Museum Hella Big 50th Anniversary Party
"Africa State of Mind" is a traveling international exhibit making its one U.S. stop at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco. It features images by emerging African photographers, showing that Africa is just as much a mental space as it is a physical space. The exhibit runs through Nov. 15th.
Indómitas, which means untamable in Spanish, is a live podcast series featuring voices of "fierce women artists and activists." Guests include authors Mirna Ruiz and Lulu Reboyoso. They published the anthology "Mujeres Magicas." Join the conversation Friday night, 6pm at Brava's Cabaret in San Francisco.
Friday Nights at Oakland Museum is throwing their Hella Big 50th Anniversary party. The museum is taking their weekly Friday night event to another level with more music, dancing, food trucks, DJs, poetry, kids activities and more. Admission to the museum gallery is free and the party starts at 5pm.
Carolina de Robertis' latest novel is Cantoras. This Sunday, 4pm at Book Passage in Corte Madera, she’ll be speaking on a panel with other local authors about immigration in America.
