In this performance, textile artist Sonya Clark invites visitors to work with her side-by-side in the museum galleries to unravel a Confederate battle flag, slowly deconstructing it thread by thread over the course of an afternoon.

The whole process takes months and many hands. The cloth becomes a metaphor, something investigated and picked apart. In the artist’s words, «Unraveling» encourages “us to think about the complexity of what happened here in this country that gave rise to this flag. It’s not easy for us to undo. It requires community and persistence.”
