More information from organisers:

Intimate Archives is a free display offering a window into African social experiments, rituals, and practices of hair care.

This exhibition is an assemblage of personal and found collections, Horniman Museum archives, and artistic collaborations. It articulates hair as a site of Black feminist care, community, and possibility.

This work addresses the historical lack of care in institutional archives in which Black women’s interior lives, thoughts, imaginations, and experiences are silent.
