Sonya Clark in dialogue with Madam CJ Walker biographer, A’Lelia Bundles, and hairstylists Kamala Bhagat & Jamilah Graham.
Join us for a conversation on hair, economics, social justice, and art. Sonya Clark and the great grand daughter and Madam C.J. Walker biographer, A’Lelia Bundles, will be in dialogue with hairstylists from the Hair Craft Project, Kamala Bhagat and Jamilah Graham. Witness the space between hair salon and art gallery collapse as hairstyles come to life on the heads of Clark and Bundles and we conjure the legacy of one of the first self made women millionaires in the context of the exhibition, Hair/Goods – An Homage to Madam C. J. Walker.
“Clark sculpts shapes and winds thread into hair power, a thrilling metaphor.”—Scott Wilson
