Sonya Clark: We Are Each Other Teacher Resource

Clark is acclaimed for using everyday fiber materials, such as hair, flags, and found fabric, and a range of textile techniques including weaving, braiding, quilting, and beading, to examine issues of history, racial injustice, cultural legacies, and reconciliation. We Are Each Other shows how her community-centered projects facilitate new collective encounters across racial, gender, and socioeconomic divisions. In addition to her large-scale installations, the exhibition will feature a range of her photographs, prints, and sculpture.Educators are encouraged to use these key images and lesson resources before or after their students’ visit to the High Museum to help facilitate further learning and discussion.
