20-YR Anniversary: Performance Event
Next up in Root Division’s exciting line-up of events and special projects is the 20-Year Anniversary Performance Event on Saturday, May 21! Hosted at SOMA-neighborhood Kapwa Gardens from 2–6 pm, this free outdoor event will feature over a dozen Studio Artists and Alums from Root Division’s Studios Program. Guests will get to witness a variety of different performances over the course of the afternoon, including musical, interactive, interdisciplinary, and durational performances among others. Other features include local food and drink pop-ups and free all-ages art activities.
The cohort of performing artists represents the 20-Year history of Root Division as an incubator for emerging artists. The span illuminates the connectivity and pathways to other arts organizations, awards, and galleries– participants in the Venice Biennale; artists in residence with Contemporary Jewish Museum and Chalk Hill; facilitators and artist projects with NIAD, deYoung Museum, and MAPP; and other collectives such as Aguas Migrantes, Glttr Collective, WeDaPePo, and more.
