Join NODE researchers in the gallery during the Performing Community exhibition for an archiving workshop that will delve deeper into the history, present issues and future of SOMA. Participants are invited to share their individual insights into this vibrant community through contributing memories, stories, future dreams, objects, text, images, sound, photography, or video. Archive contributions of any and all media will be featured in the exhibition and on the Archive SOMA website at www.archive-soma.com.
Performing Community, July 6-26, 2012 at SOMArts Cultural Center, is a group exhibition which connects artists with audiences to explore and inform community building and creative placemaking in SOMA, San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood. Curators Laura Poppiti and Kara Q. Smith were selected for one of four Commons Curatorial Residencies taking place at SOMArts in 2011–12. Click here to learn more about the exhibition.
When & Where
SOMArts Cultural Center
Insurrection, Connection & Community Through the Arts
SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, we engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation.
Founded in 1979, SOMArts embraces the entire spectrum of arts practice and cultural identity, and it is beloved in San Francisco as a truly multicultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture commingle with traditional art forms.
When a SOMArts produced event is ticketed, you can buy it here on EventBrite. SOMArts frequently hosts independent productions that manage advance tickets separately, so you may be directed elsewhere from an event page.
