FAMILY DAY: HAIRCARE CHANDELIER
Saturday, December 4, 2-4pm
Artist, mother, and healer Halima Cassells has been braiding and cornrowing since she was 10. It is a tradition she has passed down to her eldest as well. Join us for this durational performance of Black Women in a braiding circle of reciprocity that embodies the lineage and tradition of both hair care and emotional support that maintains black diasporic culture. The resulting work will remain on view at MOCAD for the duration of the season. This work is in conjunction with the Take Root exhibition by Danish artist Jeannette Ehlers. Special thanks to Crescent Beauty Supply.
