BGC’s DEAI committee invites you to a tour of the exhibit  Sonya Clark: WE ARE EACH OTHER led by MA-1 and MAD Private Tour Guide Mya Bailey, scholar of Black material culture. Open to students, faculty, and staff. RSVP required by Sunday, April 28. Click to RSVP

Working with a wide range of emotionally resonant materials and everyday objects—from cotton cloth and human hair to school desks and bricks— Clark encourages audiences to confront the country’s historical imbalances and racial injustices through material transformation. The uses of traditional craft materials, her applied knowledge of global craft techniques, and the communal collaborations that are integral to the integrity of Clark’s art are among the many ways Clark represents and honors the legacies of the African diaspora in Black life.
