Never Apart launches its winter 2021 exhibitions in the form of virtual tours every Thursday at 6 p.m. from January 21 to February 11.
The link to each virtual opening will be shared across Never Apart’s social media.
Stina’s work primarily centers around African and Caribbean histories, and mythologies, along with architectural forms. Using textiles as a framework, her interest lies in investigating and weaving ancestral relationships between fiber and form.
In Revelations, Stina revisits and reclaims the beauty found in Black culture. Both the sport of basketball, and African hairstyles have gained popularity via Black representation. The traditional coils of hair wrapped to mimic water, reveal Black people’s indispensable role in the creation of popular culture.
