Opening Reception January 19th 2018 at The Luminary in Saint Louis, MO.
One can argue that the beauty supply, as its own unique ecosystem, is one of the first “art stores” young Black women encounter: creativity oozes from these spaces. Your ego is the canvas and the materials are bundles, BoBos, and Blue Magic…
Mane ‘n Tail is an exhibition curated by Katherine Simóne Reynolds that investigates the intersectionality of this beauty exchange: How the Beauty Supply manipulates the way women of color feel about themselves, as well as the relationship between the purchasers of beauty and the people and spaces that supply it.
Participating artists include LaKela Brown, Pamela Council, Baseera Khan, Abigail Lucien, Narcissister, Yvonne Osei, Katherine Simóne Reynolds, SHENEQUA, Diamond Stingily, and Rachel Youn.
