All Your Favorite Music is Probably Black An online music history course with Mark French

Event starts in

08 Days 00 Hours 36 Minutes

Join us for All Your Favorite Music is (Probably) Black, a humorous, highly immersive, and historically accurate course that uncovers the African-American roots of popular music genres—Country, K-pop, Goth, Punk, and more—that appear to be free of African-Americans. If Spotify removed all the music genres pioneered by African-Americans, it would become a nearly empty shell. Yet Spotify (and other music sites) perpetuate the myth that African-Americans can only play hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and the blues. This music culture theft started with segregated song lists and continues today with institutionally racist music algorithms that keep all of us away from great music. My course will right this wrong, introduce you to exciting tunes, and dive deep into the talent and tales of unfairly obscured African-American artists. Plus, there will be jokes.

When: Tuesday Oct 6 - Tuesday Nov 10

Shannon Wrights Number Crunchers Art Kiosk Installation Comes to Redwood Citys Courthouse Square

Event starts in

00 Days 17 Hours 36 Minutes

The Redwood City Improvement Association, in partnership with Fung Collaboratives, has unveiled the latest Art Kiosk Installation exhibit by interdisciplinary artist, Shannon Wright. Wright’s “Number Crunchers” installation is her response to the confounding, shape-shifting quality of the data and vital information being delivered to–and withheld from–the public on any given day since COVID-19 began. “Number crunching,” a catchphrase that epitomizes the contemporary impulse to dominate through quantification, triggered for Wright an image of scissoring, hinged contraptions. Constructed from a few hundred wooden yardsticks, the sculptural objects in Number Crunchers are inspired by scissor-lift cranes and mechanical linkage systems. Although each structure is presented in a single position, each can be adjusted to expand or shrink. The yardsticks overtly reference “social distancing” tropes, while the layered configurations suggest a cacophony of information and misinformation. You can view this exhibit 24/7 from the Art Kiosk windows Saturday, August 15 through Sunday, September 13. When viewing the exhibit through the windows, please remember to practice social distancing by staying at least six feet away and wearing a mask.

When: Tuesday Sep 29 - Sunday Oct 18

Where: Redwood City’s Courthouse Square
