Call for ArtIsts

Thank you for your interest in MATRIX, an exhibition at Root Division.
The open call DEADLINE is May 1, 2022.

Root Division invites artists to apply for MATRIX, curated by Tracy Ren, taking place at Root Division in July and August of 2022.

MATRIX is an exhibition which centers the collective learning, healing and dreaming of historically overlooked and under-resourced artists. Artists will gather within the framework of MATRIX to practice alternative ways of being in the world, to experience, even if only momentarily, what we dream our futures will look and feel like.

This exhibition aims to strengthen, expand, and celebrate the networks of care within the SF Bay Area’s creative communities.

Artists working in all mediums are welcome to apply.

Exhibition Dates: July 7 – August 13, 2022
