The Fire Next Time: A Call and Response residency #3 featuring Nisha Kaur Sethi transforms Betti Ono into a space centering #artforgenderequity. Join us for a soft launch of the residency, First Friday, March 6th from 6-9pm!
“The Fire Next Time: A Call and Response, is designed to incite conversation, spark introspection, and mobilize Black and Brown artists in the interests of discovering truths. As Baldwin did, we seek to interrogate the routine in our reality and design a set of collective actions that respond to the most critical issues impacting our lives. “
Nisha Kaur Sethi is an artist/activist from Berkeley, California. As a woman of color who is deeply invested in uplifting her community, Nisha’s work serves as seeds for the resistance in which bright, bold lettering and images dance their way into the streets where they echo the chants and songs of the people. Having studied graphic design at San Francisco State University, Nisha’s work weaves together modern and traditional techniques to create mixed media art focusing on social change.
