The MilkBar at The Sunshine Biscuit Factory in East Oakland is an artist curated salon series, established in 2004 as an environment for the intersection of innovative, contemporary and experimental dance, music,theater and film.  The MilkBar’s co curators are: Mary Armentrout, Merlin Coleman and Ian Winters. Their shaOrange curatorial asthetic produces The MilkBar salons in their vibrant, intimate forty seat venue. The Milkbar actively supports site-specific work in and around the Sunshine Biscuit Factory's vast industrial complex. These salons host a dynamic and diverse range of artists creating a unique collage effect of mixed disciplines such as local butoh, experimental Russian and Turkish film, mixed media photo installations, rooftop performance art with audience participation, and singer/songwriters.  Over the past six years the MilkBar has evolved into a site of dialogue between artist and artist, artist and audience, and audience and the new.
