Collaborating with The National Caribbean Heritage Museum, Museumand is showcasing ‘The Art of Black Hair’.
The exhibition is a celebration of afro hair and an exploration of hair styling as an art form.
Museumand is a mobile social history project, or a museum without walls, featuring contributions made from Caribbeans to British society.
Formerly known as The SKN Heritage Museum, it was founded by Catherine Ross and Lynda Burrell. Musuemand will lead a series of informative sessions on some of the artists featured in ‘The Place is Here’ exhibition. Informal discussions will follow.
Taking place at The Nottingham Contemporary, the exhibition is free of charge to visit.
In a series of photographic portraits and testaments, the art exhibit captures personal journeys and the ritual of hair styling. The beauty of afro hair is delivered as an expression of creativity, imagination and heritage.
On display is also a selection of hair memorabilia from Museumand’s archives.
The exhibition will run until 19 March 2017.
