Friday Nights at OMCA with Off the Grid Featuring Art as Social Practice: Technologies for Change

December 16 from 5:00 pm 9:00 pm


Featuring the book, Art as Social Practice: Technologies for Change and DJ Danny Fathom

Join us for an abundant evening of exploring art as a practice for social change at our final Friday Nights at OMCA of the 2022 season.

Art as Social Practice: Technologies for Change is a book that highlights socially engaged art practices in the 21st century, exploring how artists use their creative practices to raise consciousness, form communities, create change, and bring forth social impact through new technologies and digital practices. Three interdisciplinary artists featured in the book along with the book’s editors will present their work through various program offerings. See below for more information.

Visit Oakland Public Library’s Bike Library at Koret Plaza on the Lower Level between 5 and 7 pm to grab a free book, sign up for a library card, and find out about upcoming library events.

DJ Danny Fathom will be playing in the Amphitheater from 6 to 8 pm.
