Artist Talk: Sonya Clark’s Blackened and Bleached

Thursday, February 4, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Artist Sonya Clark uses the Confederate Battle Flag to examine how the symbols of white supremacy and slavery haunt us. Join a brief presentation about the concept anchoring the Wadsworth’s recent acquisition of Sonya Clark’s “Blackened and Bleached” (2015) to consider how Clark challenges the resonant power of the Confederate flag and how her interventions complicate history, conservation, and preservation.
Co-Sponsored with the Costume and Textile Society of the Wadsworth Atheneum.
Registration link will be available via thewadsworth.org.
