(Re)Construction Workshop

Thursday, March 31, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

John M. Olin Library, Special Collections Classroom

The Counter/Narratives: (Re)presenting Race & Ethnicity exhibition demonstrates ways in which artists and archives can perform reparative work through their practices and encourages viewers to do the same. Working toward justice can be a physical activity as well as an intellectual one, as demonstrated in Roberto Visani’s cardboard slave kit: carpeaux blend and Sonya Clark’s Lesson Plan, both included in the exhibition. 

The (Re)Construction Workshop is an open session that offers attendees a chance to connect directly with these artworks. Participants will help build the cardboard sculpture and make their own rubbing of the Civil War truce flag on a drop-in basis. This workshop provides an opportunity to connect directly with the artworks and engage deeply with their content.

Free and open to all.
