2nd Saturday June 2023: Now Ain’t Some Day Yet & Quiet As Kept Opening Reception

 Registration is closed for this event

Root Division is excited to present the culminating project of Root Division’s 2022-2023 Bay Area Black Artist Fellow, jamil nasim. The project takes the form of two coinciding exhibitions; Now Ain’t Some Day Yet, and Quiet As Kept.

​​Curated by nasim, Now Ain’t Some Day Yet is a group exhibition that brings together a diverse range of perspectives and voices to create a rich and complex portrait of the Great Migration and its ongoing impact on Black life in the Bay Area.

Complementing Now Ain’t Some Day Yet is a coinciding solo show of nasim’s work, titled Quiet As Kept. The exhibition challenges the stereotypical representations of Black life in the South, offering an alternative view which highlights the beauty and complexity of mundane, everyday experiences in Black southern life.

Now Ain’t Some Day Yet, and Quiet As Kept are the culminating project from the 2022-23 Bay Area Black Artist Studio Fellowship. The fellowship provides free studio workspace and a monetary stipend to an emerging artist in exchange for being an integral part of Root Division’s Studios Program. In large part, the commitment involves a service project that aligns and enhances Root Division’s mission to empower artists, foster community service, inspire youth, and enrich the Bay Area through engagement in the visual arts. 

Featured in the Frank-Ratchye Project Space: RD Studio Artist and Latinx Teaching Artist Fellow Valeria Olguín's exhibition, Brown Girl from the Bay.

We can't wait to see you at our June 2nd Saturday event!
