Tomorrow night I’ll be live tweeting from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). The evening starts at 6pm with a “Beggar’s Banquet” on the rooftop curated by Blue Bottle Coffee which includes a seven-foot long cake and specialty cocktails featuring St. George Bourbon along with musical performances by The Oakland Soft Rock Choir & Amador.
At 6:30 pm, Rudolf Frieling, the SFMOMA Curator of Media Arts will present Curator One-on-One in the galleries on Tacita Dean’s “Day For Night”. Just meet in the Atrium and the talk is in the galleries on the 5th floor.
Around 8:30 pm, Adam Pendleton & David Hilliard, the Chief of Staff from the Black Panther Party will be onstage for an interview. Later there will be a video screening of clips from Pendleton’s interview with Hilliard, on their trip through Oakland as they check out historic Black Panther Party sites.
Finally, around 9:20 pm, Deerhoof plays! Above is the trailer for BAND, a 3 channel video installation featuring Deerhoof. And, as an added bonus, you can now download their new release 99% Upset Feeling for free at www.deerhoofvsevil.com
It should be a great evening of art, music, food and drinks. Feel free to follow me @thenoiseroom
From the SFMOMA Website:
Adam Pendleton and Deerhoof Present BAND
A project of New York-based artist Pendleton with the experimental musicians of Deerhoof, BAND is an unfolding artwork that re-imagines Jean-Luc Godard’s film Sympathy for the Devil.
Godard documents the Rolling Stones as they record the lead track of their 1968 album Beggar’s Banquet, while also meditating on the Black Panthers, May 1968, and the possibilities of global revolution. In BAND, Pendleton creates a three-channel video tracking Deerhoof’s recording of “I Did Crimes for You,” from their recent release Deerhoof vs. Evil. BAND‘s SFMOMA appearance will include new footage of David Hilliard, former chief of staff of the Black Panther Party, touring landmark Black Panther Party sites in Oakland, an onstage interview with Hilliard, and a Deerhoof performance with projections by Pendleton. Also, Blue Bottle Coffee and SFMOMA debut their BANQUET series with Beggar’s BANQUET on the Rooftop Garden.
