Spirit Zine Release

When: Sat., March 19, 7-11 p.m. 2016

On March 19, Yetunde Olagbaju will release the first issue of Spirit, her new zine series intended to highlight spiritual practices by people of color. As she describes it, “the zine acts as an archive for folks to find connections between artistry, expression, spiritual practice, oppression, sexuality, and the ways these aspects collide within our respective lineages and ancestries.” The release party will take place at Qulture Collective (1714 Franklin St., Oakland) from 7–11 p.m. and will feature a collaborative performance by Kiyan Williams, an Oakland-based multi-disciplinary performance artist whose work incorporates movement, installation, and storytelling; and Jaleesa Johnston, a Bay Area mixed-media artist whose work explores the Black female body as both subject and medium. The event will also include a visual art exhibition of work from all over the country, including Oakland’s own Olagbaju, House of Malico, and Soleil Summers.
