Nightlight: Divine Revolution

August, 2017

Multimedia & Performance Festival,
SOMArts, San Francisco, U.S.

Night Light is presented in conjunction with The Black Woman is God: Divine Revolution, on view in SOMArts’ Main Gallery July 20–August 26, 2017. The Black Woman is God and Night Light will present a combined total of over 100 Bay Area visual and performing artists from a variety of cultural backgrounds exploding expectations for identity-based work.

This year Night Light responds to the themes of The Black Woman is God by presenting visual art installations and performances by artists of many gender identities and cultural backgrounds that reclaims the African cultural narrative of God being a Black woman. Night Light 2017 and The Black Woman is God are co-curated by Karen Seneferu and Melorra Green.
