... the other Black experience

Event Details

Event Description

We're throwin' a party y'all!! On the first Friday in December, concurrent with Oakland's famous art walk (Art Murmur), we will have a reception for artist Norm "Nomzee" Maxwell. Expect live music, recorded music and a generally kick ass time. Read below for the full spiel.

THE TRANSMIGRATION OF SOUL

Internationally acclaimed artist Norm Maxwell is bringing a new soul to Oakland. For the first time, Maxwell will display his work in "the Brooklyn of the West," at the hip new offices of record label Blackb

all Universe.

Norm Maxwell, also known by the street moniker "Nomzee," began his career as a graffiti artist in 1979. After an art school education and decades of dedication, Maxwell has developed an unique, expressive style which reaches a wide audience of admirers. His hefty resume includes art direction and set design for the music videos of Madonna, Janet Jackson, John Legend and Iggy Pop (to name a few).

Blending street art and classical aesthetics in a deep exploration of urban symbolism, Maxwell arrives at style self-described as "visual soul." In "The Transmigration of Soul," Maxwell will display works that explore themes consistent with those of Afro-Futurism.

This year, Blackball Universe Music returned to Oakland, and with it came a slew of musicians and artists looking for a breath of fresh air. "The Transmigration of Soul" is the first of a new series of exhibitions the company plans to host in their Jack London warehouse offices, which have been producing and promoting music since March.

**The exhibition will be open to the public at 4:30pm, with an artist's reception beginning at 7pm, and an after party at 10pm. Live music beginning at 8pm. Signed prints will be available for sale.**
