Akwi Nji: The Remoir Project
September 6-October 9, 2022
Memorial Union Art Gallery, 1st Floor
This collection is a storytelling initiative honoring the intersection of "remnant" and "memoir". Donated fabric is transformed into art that is a visual representation of the memory or story that was shared by the donor. Exploring lineage, maternal relationships, and the lessons we pass between grandmothers, mothers, and daughters, this ongoing project will include stories from all US states and territories by July 2025, the US Semiquincentennial.
Reception and Remnant Gathering
Wednesday, October 5 from 6-8pm
Would you like to be part of the project? Bring your remnant/fabric/garment this evening to Akwi during the reception. Find out more about what happens next here.
The Memorial Union Art Gallery is located on the 1st floor in room 1568. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-4pm and Sunday 1-4pm.
