DESCRIPTION

In collaboration with the Winthrop University Galleries, CAFAM presents the first solo museum exhibition in Los Angeles of artist Sonya Clark. Drawing from her African-American, Scottish, and Caribbean roots, Clark incorporates both the actual hair of African-American women and culturally associated hair-braiding techniques into textile form and sculptural objects. Her symbolic and innovative interpretation of materials and weaving processes explore the layered historical and intergenerational contexts of racial identity, disenfranchisement, and definitions of beauty within African-American cultures.

Curated by Karen Derksen, Director of the Winthrop University Galleries in South Carolina. Funded in part by the Pasadena Arts Council.
