The Milkbar

The MilkBar provides affordable artist-run work and exhibition space to create new works at the intersection of video and media, physical performance and contemporary music. Funds from Alternative Exposure will support equipment and lighting upgrades to improve our experimental video/dance production space, support artist stipends for our program of salons and our resident artist program through the subsidized workspace.

Founded in 2004 in the Sunshine Biscuit Factory in East Oakland by co-curators Mary Armentrout, Merlin Coleman and Ian Winters we moved to Richmond's Santa Fe neighborhood in 2016 after being displaced from Oakland and now have a 2000sf+ workspace.
