Unbound Roots: A Paradigm for Intentional Healing

Friday, March 13–Tuesday, April 21, 2020
SOMArts, 934 Brannan St.

Curated by Alie Jones and Toshia Christal, Unbound Roots challenges the self-care industry by expanding discussions around Black wellness practices rooted in mental, spirituality and community care. Unbound Roots transcend through acceptance, pleasure, and liberation providing a safe space that encourages individual awareness, generational healing, and high vibratory engagements.

This multidisciplinary exhibition affirms that healing practices are grounded in ancestral lineages, nature, and meaningful relationships that challenge dominant narratives and commodification of “wellness”. By evoking the metaphor of the tree to explore intergenerational healing, Unbound Roots holds space for Black community members who have been conditioned to believe that healing was not for them.
