“Downtown Explastical/When will It Be  Burning?” presents eight  artists  working between  video, performance, mobile  sculpture, sound, and image. This pop up  exhibition features  artists from  Detroit, Los Angeles, Oakland and beyond and  attempts to circumvent the  oppressive structure that is resonating in Oakland through aggressive, yet poignant  sound, visuals, and movement.  Curated by Malocculsion of Oakland’s Ratskin Records.
