          Chitra Ganesh, Simone Leigh March 26, 2012 What is freedom and how is it expressed in contemporary art? What is the relationship between experimental aesthetics and radical politics? Artists and collaborators Chitra Ganesh and Simone Leigh engage in conversation about radical notions of freedom, its expression, its embodiment, its mythology and its future. Both have earned wide acclaim for producing arresting art works across a range of forms including painting, sculpture, animation, video collage, installation and performance. Drawing on vast cultural archives, Ganesh and Leigh create layered, transgressive works from buried relics and stories. Shelly Eversley (English, Baruch College) will serve as moderator. Chitra Ganesh’s art has been shown at PS1/MoMA, MOCA Shanghai, and Prince of Wales Museum, Mumbaind. Simone Leigh's art has appeared at the Studio Museum in Harlem, The Kitchen, and Rush Arts Gallery. Co-sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Seminar in the Humanities

THE ROSA SONG combines dialogue from the original film with challenging new ideas about gay male life in Germany and internationally, concluding with a rousing musical manifesto that breathes new life into this 1970s classic. The Rosa Song also exists in a non-subtitled form. A Spanish subtitled version is forthcoming. For more information about The Rosa Song contact studio@nemerofsky.ca

                    Youtube Version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPmuRagtAls Occupy Oakland attempted to reclaim an abandoned building to use as a social center and headquarters. A number of buildings were chosen but were not to be decided upon until the actual march, depending on protest size and police presence. After nearly being trapped in Laney College, the Occupy protestors successfully outflanked the police and attempted to take the Kaiser Convention Center. The Move-In however was met with violent police force. More info: www.occupyoaklandmoveinday.org www.occupyoakland.org

                      "On Monday, December 12, in response to police attacks on Occupy camps across the nation, the Occupy Movement effectively shut down sea ports up and down the West Coast, including in Oakland, Portland, Seattle, and Longview, with partial shutdowns or support actions at Long Beach, San Diego, Hueneme (Ventura County), and Vancouver, B.C. The “Wall Street on the Waterfront” campaign targeted the ports as sites of the corporate and financial power of the 1 %, and were particularly directed at the investment banking giant Goldman Sachs and grain exporter EGT, which has been in conflict with the ILWU/Longshore workers for refusing to hire union dockworker."
