Join renowned textile and social practice artist Sonya Clark as she reflects on works in her new NMWA exhibition, Sonya Clark: Tatter, Bristle, and Mend, the first survey of her 25-year career. Through her art, Clark transforms simple materials, including hair, combs, and found objects, into powerful revelations on injustice and stirring tributes to her ancestors. Clark joins NMWA Deputy Director/Chief Curator Kathryn Wat in conversation to share how she weaves, stitches, snips, braids, and beads to draw out momentous narratives on race, visibility, and the urgent need to redress history.

The conversation will be livestreamed on the museum’s Facebook page and This program is available for free to the public, but if you would like to support the museum, please consider making a $10 donation.
