The Art of Black Hair

THE ART OF BLACK HAIR

14 JANUARY 2017 – 19 MARCH 2017

CENTRAL GALLERY

LAUNCH EVENT: 13 JANUARY 2017, 6PM – 9PM

In collaboration with Museumand – The National Caribbean Heritage Museum, The Art of Black Hair is a celebration of afro hair and an exploration of hair styling as an art form.

Before Christmas we held a celebratory event where local communities shared their stories, memories and experiences of hair. The result is a series of photographic portraits and testaments that capture personal journeys, the daily ritual of hair styling, and the beauty of afro hair as an expression of creativity, imagination and heritage. We also exhibit a selection of hair memorabilia from Museumand’s archives. Following the exhibition, this important piece of local research and documentation will join the collection of Museumand.
