Night Light is presented in conjunction with The Black Woman is God: Divine Revolution, on view in SOMArts’ Main Gallery July 20–August 26, 2017. The Black Woman is God and Night Light will present a combined total of over 100 Bay Area visual and performing artists from a variety of cultural backgrounds exploding expectations for identity-based work.

This year Night Light responds to the themes of The Black Woman is God by presenting visual art installations and performances by artists of many gender identities and cultural backgrounds that reclaims the African cultural narrative of God being a Black woman. Night Light 2017 and The Black Woman is God are co-curated by Karen Seneferu and Melorra Green.

A total space activation of the Center at 934 Brannan Street, Night Light utilizes SOMArts’ indoor space and grounds, including the garden path, street-side loading bay, theater, Bay Gallery and Main Gallery to display a multitude of applications of light in art.
The Black Woman is God: Divine Revolution celebrates the Black female presence as the highest spiritual form and challenges viewers to do the same. Over 60 Bay Area artists refocus the audience on the vital contributions of Black women as artists and social change-makers throughout history.
