at home: Artists in Conversation | Grace Wales Bonner

by Yale Center for British Art


“Clothing is as important as drumming within a black radical tradition”, Grace Wales Bonner recounts in a conversation with Ishmael Reed, American poet.

In Yale University’s “at home: Artist in Conversation” series, Grace Wales Bonner, British fashion designer, and Christine Checinska, Curator of African and African Diaspora Fashion at Victoria and Albert Museum, discuss Bonner’s sacred lineage amongst literary writers for her Serpentine Galleries exhibition, A Time for New Dreams. The conversation also dives into Bonner’s in-depth research on Afro-Atlantic history, visual culture, and musical compositions.
