Root Division presents Introductions 2021, the 15th iteration of our annual juried exhibition. The Introductions exhibition showcases the talent of twelve emerging artists, highlighting artists without gallery representation in the San Francisco Bay Area. Three jurors selected the artists based on the conceptual and formal strength of their work through a highly competitive juror review process of over 200 submissions. The resulting exhibition includes a diverse range of media and subject matter featuring painting, sculpture, video, and installation. This presentation is one of the keystones of Root Division’s gallery program, offering artists exposure to the art community and beyond through an exhibition, reception, and a print publication.

The artists in this year’s cohort explore a varied and expansive set of ideas, and some through lines emerge: tactile pop-forward manifestations of technological impact; impermanence and loss of loved ones, culture, and home; and object-making which offers a restoration of and response to generational memory and trauma.
Introductions 2021 will be on view in our gallery by appointment from August 25 - September 18, 2021. Email us at visit [at] to schedule an appointment.
