Root Division presents Mounding, a performance by Introductions artist Selby Sohn. Selby will be performing a mound activation, using the sculptural component of their featured work The Centaur. The performance will begin promptly at 5.30pm. Guests may start arriving at 5.15pm. Please bring a mask!
Introductions 2022, is the 16th iteration of our annual juried exhibition. The Introductions exhibition showcases the talent of thirteen emerging artists, highlighting artists without gallery representation in the San Francisco Bay Area. Three jurors selected the artists based on the conceptual and formal strength of their work through a highly competitive juror review process. The resulting exhibition includes a diverse range of media and subject matter featuring painting, sculpture, video, and installation. This presentation is one of the keystones of Root Division’s gallery program, offering artists exposure to the art community and beyond through an exhibition, reception, and a print publication.
