Artists from the East Bay’s live cinema, experimental music, interactive media and unpredictable orchestra subcultures will be in attendance, roaming, hiding, revealing, and lighting up the Oakland Museum of California’s béton brut.
The Illuminated Corridor is a next step in outdoor cinema: A nomadic public art project that creates site-specific illumination of public space, drawing on local traditions of film and live music.
Working with unlikely natural and built spaces, The Illuminated Corridor has convened seven times since the Summer of 2005, catalyzing site-specific work, showcasing diverse collaborations between performative projectionists and musicians, and covering a vast territory of film and music genres.
The following artists from The Illuminated Corridor will be undertaking a light-art project exclusively for the Best East Bay Party capitalizing on the beautiful architecture and grounds of the museum:
