Funk Ain't Dead!

Apply by: Monday, May 7, at 11:59pm


Root Division invites artists working in all media to submit work for Funk Ain't Dead. Inspired by the original, Funk exhibition presented at the University Art Museum at the University of California, Berkeley in 1967. The themes tackled by those original Bay Area Funk artists remain relevant today. Described as hot, committed, bizarre and sensuous, Funk Art encompasses the colorful, the weird, the politically outraged, the sidewalk scavenger, the hoarder, and the psychedelic. Funk Ain't Dead celebrates the funky makers still creating in the Bay Area through various mediums and reflects on past remnants of the original movement and how the same sensibility continues to be championed today.
