WED 6 OCT / 6PM
The exhibition aims to:
1. open up a dialogue in relation to afrocentric hair and acts that may on the face of it appear innocuous;
2. provide an insight into the history of hair relative to race and social indoctrination of the standard of beauty; and
3. to acknowledge and validate the experience of individuals with afrocentric hair/hairstyles.
(the collection of photographs will be exhibited for 4 weeks)
