Event Details

100 Foot Tall Film Night | The Great Wall of Oakland

For special events, and on select first Fridays during Oakland Art Murmur, the Great Wall of Oakland, a 100 ′x 100′ projection installation, illuminates the Uptown District with cutting-edge motion art from around the world.

The Great Wall of Oakland is located at the corner of Broadway and West Grand Avenue in downtown Oakland.

In 2016 the Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) and the Great Wall of Oakland will be partnering to create “On the Road”, a mobile video screening and interactive art-making project that will transform a classic 1963 Ford Falcon van into a community engagement tool that will travel throughout Oakland exploring the changes and migration patterns happening in this rapidly evolving city.

For their first installation in December 2016 at the Great Wall, and an annexed parking lot space near the corner of Telegraph and Grand Ave., they will be exploring the ever changing history of Oakland and will be screening films resonating with this theme from early PBA’s from the 1920’s – 1970’s in addition to contemporary pieces by video artists working in the city today.
