Inspired by Allen Ginsberg’s collection of inscribed snapshots on view in the exhibition Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg, Bay Area artists and scholars will create a unique performance-based tour of the gallery. Performances will be drawn from encounters with Allen Ginsberg and his legendary cohort of Beat writers, artists, and lovers. Performers and scholars include Jewelle Gomez, Richard Meyer, Tirza Latimer, Justin Chin, Jaime Cortez, and DL Alvarez.
