Emerging Artist Program presents Cynthia Aurora Brannvall in conversation with Mirka Knaster

Join us for a talk with Cynthia Aurora Brannvall in conversation with fiber artist Mirka Knaster about Brannvall’s current exhibition on view in the MoAD Salon. The Threads that Bind is an allusion to a body of artwork rendered in textiles to evoke memory, presence, labor, trade, industry, slavery, luxury, baptisms, weddings, funerals, gender and history in the African diaspora. The concept and material of thread creates meaning as an ancestral carrier traveling through time across borders through voluntary and involuntary migration from one body to another. The bind refers to shared experiences of trauma, oppression and perseverance that cohere in Black identity.
