Waypoint's Brewery Dinner series, Jennifer Greenburg' s imposing photography and more stuff to do this week

Our weekly Red List round-up

By CityBeat Staff

Digable flick

Allan Sekula, who died last year, was a photographer, writer and deep thinker based at CalArts in Valencia. Noël Burch is a noted film critic. In 2010, the pair collaborated on a documentary film, The Forgotten Space, that won the Venice Horizons Award at the Venice Film Festival. The movie, based on Sekula’s Fish Story—a 1995 book that explored the global maritime industry—examines globalization’s impacts, detailing the plight of farmers, cargo workers and low-wage laborers around the world. “Capitalism,” Mark Holcomb writes in his review in The Village Voice, “can’t help but eat itself, Sekula and Burch suggest—we might just have to endure ‘a world of relentless toil’ before the chewing stops.” The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego will host a screening of the film at 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 14, at its La Jolla location (700 Prospect St.). General admission is $8, $5 for seniors and free for museum members and students.


Digable photography

greenburg

Chicago-based photographer Jennifer Greenburg describes her new series, Revising History, as"entirely counterfeit." By that she's referring to her concept of taking old photo negatives and inserting herself—literally—into the scene. Like in "His First Haircut," shown here—that's not the kid's mom fussing over him, but Greenburg. In "Our Vacation to Niagara Falls," she's posed sitting on a chair while some dapper guy leans in nearby, holding a cocktail. The effect on the viewer is riveting, and almost eerie—you find yourself creating a whole narrative for Greenburg's faux scenes, but at the same time wondering what she's removed from the film. Revising History opens with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 14, at jdc Fine Art (2400 Kettner Blvd., Little Italy) where it'll be on view through May 31.


Digable to-do

tradesmen

Tradesmen (21 16th St.) is a relatively new co-working and event space located in an 118-year-old Victorian home near where the East Village turns into Barrio Logan. According to the folks running the space, the house was one of the first built when professional entrepreneurs started living and working Downtown. With that in mind, the purveyors are inviting professionals (especially creative types) to set up shop inside the home and help them breathe new life into the old building. At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 13, Tradesmen will play host to Cake & Whiskey, a gathering for business women looking to connect in a non-networking environment (read: no douchey schmoozing allowed). It's a chance to get to know other female entrepreneurs, plus enjoy cake, small-batch whiskey, a raffle and an art exhibition featuring Kim Niehans, Karina Bania and Lauren Siry. Bring new or newish business-like accessories to be donated to Dress for Success San Diego. 


Digable eats

waypointpublicWaypoint Public is vying to become one of the city's top locations for food and beer pairings. To convince San Diego of its culinary eminence, the newish North Park restaurant (3794 30th St.) will launch its Brewery Dinner Series on Wednesday, March 12. The first 25 people to make a reservation for the $150 prix-fixe dinner will munch on a nine-course meal, featuring nine different beers from Lost Abbey. The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. in Waypoint’s newly-constructed event space with scallop crudo, paired with a beer called Duck Duck Gooze. From there, guests will bite into—among other beer-paired vittles—roasted sturgeon, pork tenderloin, coffee-rubbed rack of Colorado lamb and cherry sorbet, as well as enjoy several rare and limited-release brews. The restaurant’s executive chef, Top Chef Season 7 contestant Amanda Baumgarten, will prepare the food.
