‘Diedrick Brackens: ark of bulrushes’ opening celebration

July 16 | 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Join us for the opening celebration of Diedrick Brackens: ark of bulrushes, which features works by Los Angeles-based artist Diedrick Brackens. Known for making colorful textiles about African American and queer histories, Brackens has developed a process of combining the tactility of yarn with the ethos of storytelling. For this exhibition, the artworks tell timeless narratives about emancipation and remediation through pattern, body, and the power of craft.

1 PM | Moving with the Spirit, a dance and drum performance of African Diaspora Arts.

2 PM – 3 PM | Artist Diedrick Brackens and Lauren R. O’Connell, curator at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Arts and curator of the ark of bulrushes, discuss the evolution of the exhibition, the agency of contemporary craft, and expansive possibilities of artist-curator collaborations.
