Venue: 1131 Mission Street
Root Division presents Introductions 2018, the 12th iteration of our annual juried exhibition. The Introductions exhibition showcases the talent of twelve emerging artists in the San Francisco Bay Area, offering exposure to the art community and beyond through public reception, and catalogue documentation.
The Introductions exhibition continues to respond to the need to highlight artists without gallery representation in the Bay Area. Through a highly competitive review process this year's jurors — Indira Allegra, Artist & Writer, Beryl Bevilacque, Artist Liaison, Jessica Silverman Gallery, and Rebeka Rodriguez, Civic Engagement Manager, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts — selected finalists from over 175 submissions based on the conceptual and formal strength of the work. The resulting exhibition includes diverse range of media and subject matter featuring video, installation, sculpture, photography and painting.
The exhibition is one of the keystones of Root Division’s exhibition programming offering exposure to emerging artists and a chance for the public to view cutting edge local art production in the Bay Area.
