IPTC INFO
CaptionThe Oakland Museum of California presents its 12th annual celebration of Días de los Muertos Days of the Dead October 12–December 4 2005. In this year’s presentation—CaliVera: Days of the Dead Altars Remixed—guest curator Jaime Cortez and the artists explore how this ancient Mexican and Central American spiritual tradition honoring the dead has inspired artistic expressions unique to California’s spirit. “Days of the Dead is a mystical and sensuous immigrant to the Golden State ” Cortez said. “The celebration has given thousands of Californians a more accepting and even playful attitude toward death. In exchange it has been transformed by the quirky inventive and cosmopolitan spirit of our state. This year’s exhibition CaliVera reflects how this ancient spiritual practice has been infused with new life in California.” The museum will host its festive Days of the Dead Community Celebration Sunday October 23 from noon to 4 p.m. in the gardens. This free public party features crafts and demonstrations music dance a ceremonia ceremony costumed revelers and a mercado market. See page 3 for a calendar of all Días de los Muertos programs. Guest curator Jaime Cortez is pursuing an MFA at UC Berkeley. He has exhibited in galleries throughout Northern California and served as program manager of Galería de la Raza in San Francisco’s Mission District. His fiction and essays have appeared in more than a dozen anthologies and journals. ___________________________________ Deadbeat: Poems and Songs to the Dead and the Not-So-Dead Friday November 4 2005 8–9:30 p.m. Come celebrate the trickster spirit of the holiday with song and poetry at Deadbeat.
