Sonya Clark began unraveling the Confederate Flag.

 

During the opening of our current group show “New Dominion,” artist Sonya Clark performed the unraveling of the Confederate flag with audience members. The threading is a long, often frustrating process, mimicking how the process of dismantling racism is also not an easy task.

The Charleston shooting only proves that we do NOT live in post-racial America and that this act of racial violence cannot be separated from the ideology of White Supremacy the Confederate flag rests upon.
