“A flag does not just represent power, but place and identity. Hair is also a way to command space, both individually and culturally.” – Robert Pruitt

How do we use our bodies to tell our story? Dr. Sarah Eckhardt moderates a powerful discussion with two artists currently featured in Identity Shifts. Discussing their work and how they perceive the shifting ideas of culture, history and the human body, Sonya Clark and Robert Pruitt open up the meaning of identity.
