“Many of my family members taught me the value of a well-told story, and so it is that I value the stories held in objects.”
Sonya Clark will discuss the body of work she created over the past two decades. Among those are Unum, Spider, Fingers, Hemi, and Triad, sculptures by the artist included in MMoCA’s permanent collection. These works reimagine the Fibonacci mathematical series through the rituals and traditions of Black hairstyling and embody Clark’s exploration of race and identity through a wide variety of materials and processes.
The talk is held as the fourth Stephen Fleischman Lectureship, which was established to honor the 25th anniversary of Stephen Fleischman’s tenure as the director of MMoCA. The Stephen Fleischman Lectureship is free and open to the public.
