Join us as Nikki Hendricks, a DC Native, discusses her 12-piece fashion collection during her 13-week residency. Nikki broke up the 12 looks into three social justice issues: Climate Change, African American Rights, and Native American Rights and created three fabric designs for each. Nikki used red rope in each look to symbolize white supremacy. How it affects and hinders each of these issues and ties them all together. The need for overproduction and capitalism affects climate change. The need for conquering and colonization has affected Native Americans and the Euro centricity; systematic racism is what has oppressed African Americans.
The Honfleur Gallery will open at 6:00 PM, one hour prior to the start of Nikki’s Artist talk.
