From the gallery:
“Dallas exhibit Hair Story seeks to explore how Black hair is more than mere follicles: it’s economic, political, and spiritual. The exhibit is curated by and features work from Dallas-based visual artist LaShonda Cooks, Art-Fro Kreationz, Ciara Elle Bryant, Danielle Demetria, Feniiix Raiii, Loosemedium, and Youveline Joseph and seeks to celebrate Black hair and its complicated roots.
Cooks’ goal is to reﬂect and build on inspiration from these selected artists. The exhibit is supported by a microgrant from the City of Dallas Oﬃce of Arts and Culture and features Cooks’ series of miniature portraits painted on palm leaf plates. These paintings will be gifted back to their muses once the show ends in February.
In addition to the physical exhibit, there will be a virtual Hair-oetry Poetry Workshop with Nappyisms creator Linda Jones on November 14 from 2 to 3 pm and a drive-in short ﬁlm festival on December 5 from 7 to 9 pm.”
