Artist Athlone Clarke will join the Gregg Museum of Art & Design to talk about his work in crossed kalunga by the stars & other acts of resistance, which can be seen at the Gregg through March 12. Clarke was born in Jamaica in 1956 and immigrated in 1865 to the United States, where he first worked as a professional writer. However, the move to the U.S. gave him a chance to reinvent himself by starting to pursue a lifelong interest in making visual art. At the same time, he began exploring the concept of tsukumogami, the Japanese folk belief that old tools, household objects, and familiar keepsakes eventually acquire souls or spirits as a result of their long use and association with their owners. This led to seeing all the objects around him as capable of possessing memories, meanings and energies that could be channeled into making mixed-media artworks from found objects.
