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.
