Sonya Clark’s Unraveling
Saturday, November 4th, 3:00 pm

Historic Landmark Building
Pre-registration is now closed. Please come anyway and enjoy - first come first served additions welcome.

In this performance, textile artist Sonya Clark invites visitors to work with her side-by-side in the museum galleries to unravel a confederate battle flag, slowly deconstructing it thread by thread over the course of an afternoon. The whole process takes months and many hands. The cloth becomes a metaphor, something investigated and picked apart. In the artist’s words, Unraveling encourages “us to think about the complexity of what happened here in this country that gave rise to this flag. It’s not easy for us to undo. It requires community and persistence.”
