Join curator Favour Ritaro for a 3D tour and discussion of the exhibition, Hairitage.

The virtual curatorial tour of Hairitage is an opportunity to take the public through an enriching and immersive experience of the exhibition. The curator, Favour Ritaro will take the viewers on a journey delving into the artistic vision, themes, and the overall exhibition idea. She further describes the overarching theme that ties the artworks together.

Hairitage is a group exhibition exploring the role of Black hair in Black and African American identity and examines historical racial discrimination and contemporary significance of Black hair in the United States.

Through thematic exploration of identity, memory, community, racism, and resistance, the presented works offer a nuanced examination of the politics of Black hair and how deep rooted systems of oppression have shaped the prejudicial treatment of Black people from the slavery era to present-day America.

Favour Ritaro is a Nigerian curator whose practice explores ideas that challenge and enhance our understanding of the past. Her curatorial purview critically views representations of personal and cultural identities, nationhood, gender.
