Come to this special night programmed for students by students. This spring’s Student Night takes inspiration from the rebellious spirit of OCMA’s Alien She exhibition, with a live roller derby scrimmage on the patio presented by OC Roller Girls, a photo booth, and gallery tours.
Cinema Orange presents "Hello, My Name is Frank . . ." Fresh from its world premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival, the film is a sweet and uplifting comedy about Frank, a hermit with Tourette Syndrome who is thrust into the harsh realities of the world when his caregiver dies.
Performances by original Riot Grrrl band members! Line-up includes DJ Emily Ryan and DJ Wendy Yao (previously of Emily’s Sassy Lime), Kim & the Created, and The Sex Stains featuring Allison Wolfe, lead vocalist (previously of Bratmobile and Partyline.)
Short for magazine or fanzine, “zines” are self-publications, motivated by a desire for self-expression. OCMA’s Fanatic celebrates the history and modern iteration of the “zine,” with legendary artists and scholars in conversation, drop-in workshops, and free access to the galleries. Fanatic will also host BOOKMOBILE Project—a renowned traveling showcase of independently produced books and zines from across the U.S. and Canada—and their newly released publication.
Co-created by legendary Riot Grrrl Faythe Levine, OCMA offers a special screening of “Sign Painters.” What was once a common job has now become a highly specialized trade, a unique craft struggling with technological advances. “Sign Painters,” stylistically explores this unacknowledged art form through anecdotal accounts from artists across the country. Arrive early for a live sign painting demonstration by Patrick G. Smith.
