Event description

There's nothing new
under the sun,
but there are new suns. —Octavia Butler

Most of us agree that the structures of our world are corrupt. But there are ways of resisting, of reshaping, of bringing a more just world into being. Each of the artists in New Suns are grounded in their own specific experiences of heritage, ritual, and belonging. Artists Sofía Córdova, Nicki Green, Cathy Lu, Adia Millett, and Genevieve Quick hold different histories of oppression and joy in tension in their work, while sharing a common commitment to the practice of creative world-building. With radical hope, they imagine different practices of coexistence, crafting propositions for life oriented around different suns.  

This exhibition is supported by The San Francisco Advocacy for the National Museum of Women in the Arts and was curated by Lauren Schell Dickens, Chief Curator at San José Museum of Art.
