Sonya Clark: Tatter, Bristle, and Mend

Textile and social practice artist Sonya Clark (b. 1967) is renowned for her mixed-media works that address race and visibility, explore Blackness, and redress history. This exhibition—the first survey of Clark’s 25-year career—includes the artist’s well-known sculptures made from black pocket combs, human hair, and thread as well as works created from flags, currency, beads, cotton plants, pencils, books, a typewriter, and a hair salon chair. Featuring 100 works of art, Sonya Clark: Tatter, Bristle, and Mend Tatter, Bristle, and Mend spans the breadth of the artist’s career to date. Through her art, Clark manifests ancestral bonds and reasserts the Black presence in histories from which it has been pointedly omitted.
