Launch Event: Crowns of Confidence by Rachael Young & Richard Houguez

22 November 2014, 3.30pm – 5pm

Pop-up hair salon (ground floor)

Performance artist Rachael Young and self-taught hairdresser Richard Houguez will set up a hairstyling laboratory in NAE's pop-up hair salon. Here, working with a range of voluntary participants, they will use the process of hairstyling to explore the cultural significance of hair and the role persona plays in hairdressing.

The artists' hair salon workshops will take place 8, 9, 15 and 16 November, 10am–5pm. Participants will reflect on the significance of their current styling choices and create a hairstyle that reflects their own Crown of Confidence. Want to get involved? Contact Roshni@nae.org.uk.

The results of the Crowns of Confidence research project will be shared in the pop-up salon from 22 November.

Young and Houguez's project at NAE builds on their ongoing Intersections commission with Primary, Nottingham.
