Event Details

Inspired by the original, Funk exhibition presented at the University Art Museum at the University of California, Berkeley in 1967, Funk Ain’t Dead pays homage to the original Bay Area Funk artists by showcasing how those modes of making remain relevant and active within contemporary Bay Area artists and makers.

Described as hot, committed, bizarre and sensuous, Funk Art encompasses the colorful, the weird, the nasty, the politically outraged, the sidewalk scavenger, the hoarder, and the psychedelic. Funk Art artists refused to be limited to one form, medium or subject matter, rather their eccentric styles forging ahead on individual paths carrying artists from medium to medium.

Funk Ain’t Dead reflects on past remnants of the original Funk Art movement and how this sensibility continues to be championed today. Ultimately, this exhibition celebrates the funky makers still creating in the Bay Area today.
