Join us Saturday, June 30th from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. for MODA’s newest tour series, Design Like Me!
Highlighting the work of both black and brown designers, Design Like Me is a curated tour experience designed to engage visitors with the voices of those underrepresented in the design field.
MODA’s exhibition, Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism (opening June 3) looks at the worldwide craftivist movement and the designers, as well as artists, using their hands to protest social and political inequalities and injustices. Focusing on designers and artists such as Chawne Kimbur, Laura Madriz, the Social Justice Sewing Academy, Roberto Lugo and others, each tour will delve deeply into their respective design processes and the impact of their culture, heritage, and lived experiences on their work.
Following the tour, take part in your own form of cross stitch activism inspired by The Hair Craft Project by Sonya Clark. Clark’s project, in her own words, “bridges boundaries between hair salons and art galleries as sites of aesthetics, craft, skill, improvisation, and commerce.”
Using Aida cloth, needles, and embroidering floss, recreate your favorite braided or flat twisted style and map out your own “hairstory”.
