Claire Alexandre – Of Soil and Sky – July 24, 2021
About the Exhibition
Of Soil and Sky is a collection of passed-down memories that share the wandering reflections of my existence as a Diaspora child on unceded Indigenous and AfroCarolina land. Housed in the depths of 21c Museum Hotel Durham and NC Mutual Life Insurance’s Provident 1898, these vibrant depictions of ancestors, friends, and mentors become intertwined with the buildings’ cultural foundations and that of the larger landscape of what we call North Carolina. Part mythology for this moment and part ecological guide, the mixed-media offerings honor the powerful entities and energies that have repeatedly created sanctuary for my people and me, not only throughout time, but into futurity.
This exhibition is co-organized and presented by 21c Museum Hotel Durham, The Understudy, Provident 1898, and Mavis Gragg.
Join us outside on the terrace at the historic NC Mutual building for an evening of food, drinks, networking, and music.
