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.
