Launch of I Am Beautiful – African Hair Project

I AM BEAUTIFUL: AFRICAN HAIR PROJECT SHEPPARTON 2018
Exhibition: June 14 – July 30
Riverlinks Eastbank, 70 Welsford St, Shepparton

This special photographic exhibition offers a uniquely African Australian perspective on hairstyling, revealing a diversity of viewpoints and voices that challenge dominant Western ideals of beauty. Photographic self-portraits, design and videos created by Congolese born multimedia artist JeanMichel Batakane, photographer Liz Arcus and inter-disciplinary artist Jagath Dheerasekara, capture 15 local African Australian people living in Shepparton, exploring their ideas of what is ‘good hair’, their relationships with their hair, and how ideals of beauty have influenced their lives.

View the exhibition during Eastbank opening hours from June 14 – July 30
