Opening Night Reception: Sept, 14, 2017 6pm-8pm
Entanglements: Stories woven in fiber. Fiber is a medium charged with meaning in Sonya Clark's work. The artist consciously weaves together content and material by using hair as a cultural and physical medium. This solo exhibition surveys Clark's honed oeuvre and her explorations of identity, labor, collective memory and culture.
Entanglements includes new and existing works by Clark.
