Choreographies of Disclosure: What the Mind Forgets

When: Jan. 11-Feb. 15 2019

In 2013, multidisciplinary artist Jadelynn Stahl founded Oakland-based collective Disclose to speak up about LGBTQ+ sexual violence through art. Now, with Pro Arts Gallery, Stahl has curated Choreographies of Disclosure: What the Mind Forgets, a time-and-space exhibit that includes performances, visual art, facilitated panels, and community forums. The five-week event features four poetic stories — which were worked on and restructured by Stahl and Bay Area queer and trans artists — accompanied by four expressive pieces in the artists’ chosen medium. The performances and crafted works aspire to show how and what the physical body feels after a traumatic experience. Participating artists include new media artist Eliza Barrios, artist and professor Angela Hennessy, and music producer LeahAnn Mitchell. On Wednesday, Jan. 30, there will be a visioning session open to LGBTQ+ individuals, where attendees will write down their hopes for the world on strips of cloth that will be hung in the exhibition space. An artist talk will follow on Thursday, Feb. 7. Runs through Feb. 15, free, 150 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, ProArtsGallery.org
