Now in its fifth iteration at SOMArts Cultural Center, The Black Woman Is God has proven to be a high-level exhibition. It presents lessons in spiritual identity, conveying the Black feminine rituals that have developed the structure of the Black Community. These practices encourage diasporic collaboration, which continues to build visual discourse and advances the architecture of Black culture. Therefore, what have Black women artists imagined? What will they imagine for themselves, for their family, for the community, the future?

Co-curators Karen Seneferu and Melorra Green envision The Black Woman is God not only as an exhibition but as a movement-building platform that explores the intersections of race and gender, dismantling racist and patriarchal notions that devalue Black women’s contributions to the world. The Black Woman is God highlights a community of Black women artists whose complex creative practices have influenced the world.

This exhibition was made possible with the support of the African American Art & Culture Complex, California Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
