Exhibition Opening: The Black Woman is God
San Francisco Main Library, African American Center
100 Larkin St., 3rd floor
March 1 – May 15, 2014
Curated by Karen Seneferu, one of five contributing artists, the exhibition The Black Woman is God, will be on view in the Main Library’s African American Center March 1- May 15. The exhibition is deeply influenced by Afrocentric scholars Frances Cress-Wesling and Dr. Runoko Rashidi, who see divinity in the Black Woman.
Contributing artists Tarika Lewis, Karen Seneferu, Malik Seneferu, Sydney “Sage” Cain and Ajuan Mance also present artwork which explores the divinity of Blackness, and the centrality of the Black Woman within that cosmology. The exhibition explores politics within the art in this provocative presentation.
