Now in its fourth iteration at SOMArts, The Black Woman is God reveals a community of Black women artists that pay homage to their complex creative practices that have influenced the world, but are often overlooked because of the intersections class, race, and gender discrimination. The Black Woman is God: Reclaim, Reconfigure, and Re-Remember gives Black women their flowers, affirming that they are essential to building a more just society and a sustainable future.
This exhibition reclaims physical spaces that have historically been denied to Black women artists, and reconfigures communal trauma through healing, African diasporic traditions and practices. The community connections made through this movement building platform are all designed to re-remember, which is to recognize who Black people are as human beings and their contributions to African-American culture as well as the Global African Diaspora.
The Black Woman is God: Reclaim, Reconfigure, Re-Remember is open to the public Thursday, November 7–Saturday, December 12, 2020 with timed ticketing entry. Additional programs and exhibitions are done in partnership with the African American Art & Culture Complex, and Mills College.
