Indira Allegra

February 26, 2020 7 PM

Starr Foundation, 65 5th Avenue, UL102

Indira Allegra is re-imagining what a memorial can feel like, the scale on which it can exist and how it can function. Deeply informed by the ritual, relational and performative aspects of weaving, Allegra explores the repetitive crossing of forces held under tension be they material, social or emotional. Their work has been featured at the Museum of Art and Design, Museum of the African Diaspora, The Arts Incubator in Chicago, John Michael Kholer Art Center, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, SFMOMA and the de Young Museum among others. Allegra has been the recipient of the Artadia Award, Tosa Studio Award, Windgate Craft Fellowship, Jackson Literary Award, Mike Kelley Artist Project Grant and MAP Fund. She is the 2019 Burke Prize winner, Eureka Fellow and a triennial 2019-2022 Montalvo Art Center Sally and Don Lucas Artist Fellow. 

This VAL talk is in cooperation with MAD, Museum of Art and Design
