SOMArts Cultural Center: The Black Woman is God: Assembly of Gods (Closing Reception)
September 27, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
SOMArts is proud to present The Black Woman is God: Assembly of Gods, a multidisciplinary exhibition with free admission from August 30–October 2, 2018, celebrating the Black female presence as the highest spiritual form. More than 50 intergenerational artists working in sculpture, painting, new media, and photography create new myths to challenge Eurocentric notions of God. Now in its third year at SOMArts, the exhibition’s theme represents the various spiritual traditions of the African diaspora that encourage members of the Black community to claim their own divinity. The exhibition uplifts and makes visible the multiplicity of Black art, culture and spirituality. The closing reception on Thursday, September 27, 6–9pm provides a final opportunity to activate the exhibition with a community celebration and performances by Dakatari Dance Collective.
