Exhibitor: The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Visiting Artists Program
The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Visiting Artists Program presents:
Sonya Clark: Distinguished Alumni Lecture Series Tuesday, March 28, 6:00 p.m. The Art Institute of Chicago, Rubloff Auditorium, 230 S. Columbus Dr.
Sonya Clark’s (BFA 1993) artwork and projects trace connections between hair and textiles, communities and commodities, and radicalized identities. Her works invoke ancestral ties, historical legacies, and address contemporary relationships through found objects and collaborative actions. As an African American artist, she uses craft as a means to honor her lineage and expand notions of both Americanness and art. She formally manipulates materials to engage the viewer in conversation forming a visual vocabulary of language ranging from the vernacular to the political to the poetic.
