By - posted 1/8/2017

The Ghost Ship fire on December 2, 2016, was the deadliest in Oakland’s history, killing thirty-six people. Kiyomi Tanouye, a dear member of the Exploratorium family, was confirmed deceased several days after the tragedy. She was beloved by many here and elsewhere.

The Tactile Dome welcomes loved ones and artist warehouse communities to join them in honoring her and all of the fire’s victims.

In Memory of and Loving Tribute to Kiyomi Tanouye
Monday, January 9, 2017 | 3pm to 9pm
Tactile Dome and Kanbar Forum at Exploratorium – Enter through the historic Bulkhead
FREE (no museum admission) donations benefit the Kiyomi Tanouye Fund at Mills College

The Exploratorium will host The Cave You Fear to Enter, a unique solo journey through darkness to elsewhere, guided by soundscapes related to various stages of Kiyomi’s life and loves. In the Kanbar Forum, they will screen two films that reflect Kiyomi’s deep love for the Jejune Institute and artist warehouse communities.

  • The Institute (2013, 92 min.) by Spencer McCall, shown at 5 pm, is a documentary about Jejune that takes you deep into a secret underground where real and fictional worlds collide.
  • Goodnight Brooklyn (2016, 83 min.) by Matthew Conboy, shown at 7:15 pm, documents the forced closure of Death by Audio, an underground venue, and the struggles to maintain a community.
