SAN FRANCISCO, CA- Root Division presents Character Profile, a group exhibition featuring projects that explore intersections between the forms, mechanisms and meanings of language.   Featuring a group of twenty-six artists including visual artists, writers, and craftspeople, Character Profile investigates novel functions of language through collaboration and a broad range of materials, media and approaches.

 

The artists in Character Profile present language as both a medium and a subject, and deftly maneuver words to both convey and critique meaning. Many works are interactive and dedicated to a spirit of engagement and play. The exhibition highlights art designed for direct interaction with visitors and work that provokes expanded meanings and alternative associations of language and test.

ABOUT ROOT DIVISION:

Root Division is a visual arts non-profit located in the Mission District of San Francisco. Root Division's mission is to improve appreciation and access to the visual arts by connecting personal inspiration and community participation. We provide subsidized studio space to working artists in exchange for their service in creating shared learning opportunities for the community.

By combining multiple opportunities for creative exchange, Root Division cultivates an artistic ecosystem that enriches life throughout the Bay Area.
