SOMarts write at their website about the festival: “62 proposals were submitted, of those 13 were accepted by the curatorial team. The break down of offerings is as follows:

SOMARTS, JUNE 27th and 28th:
Mica Sigourney, Jason Torres Hancock, Xandra Ibarra, Harold Burns, Laura Arrington, and Anna Martine Whitehead

Chase Joynt, Monique Jenkinson, Ben Mc Coy, Kevin Seaman, Dacia Holliday, Vagina Jenkins, and Tessa Wills

For the thirteen artists showing in this year’s program, acts of art-making and acts of sex collide. The result will be equal parts frank, ferocious, urgent, and of course tender.”
