SPELL OF THE SENSES EXHIBITION (Upcoming)
Curated by: Jasmin Bode & Michelle Mansour

Exhibition Dates: Apr 7, 2021 to Apr 24, 2021

"Presented in conjunction with this year's virtual TASTE event, Spell of the Senses will feature artists whose work focuses on the activation of one or more of the five major physical inputs: touch, sight, sound, smell, and taste. Senses act as the first layer of perception and connection to our environment and one another. Works presented will include a range of materiality and sensory activations to re-imagine the senses as they inform how we understand our own realities."
"Diasporic Futurism was born out of the desire to showcase and celebrate emerging and established Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) artists whose work reckons with the themes of imagination, identity, place, and joy. Diasporas honor the history of forced migration as a result of political, cultural, and physical subjugation that is the story of many BIPOC peoples currently living on occupied land. Futurism envisions imaginative, alternate realities full of beauty, possibility, and liberation, systematically denied to those populations because of a patriarchal, capitalist, white supremacist society." Curated by Leah King and Juan Carlos Rodríguez Rivera at Root Division Gallery in San Francisco, California.
