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.

Opening with a free public reception on Thursday, August 30, 6–10pmThe Black Woman is God presents a Crowns and Gowns procession that will reveal beauty as a site of resistance to annihilation.
