Black Woman is God

Catch Nicole's latest art work

in this upcoming exhibit at SOMArts Cultural Center. 

Co-curated by Karen Seneferu and Melorra Green, The Black Woman is God celebrates the Black female presence as the highest spiritual form and challenges viewers to do the same. More than 60 intergenerational artists working in sculpture, painting, and new media hone in on the vital contributions of Black women as artists and social change-makers, ensuring that the Black woman’s contribution to society is seen and valued. Activated by live performances and a community cyper, The Black Woman is God asserts that celebrating Black women is essential to building a more just and sustainable future. All are welcome to reconsider mainstream constructions of Black femininity.
